III. Groton and Providence. Letters and journals.

What hath not man sought out and found,
     But his dear God? Who yet his glorious love
Embosoms in us, mellowing the ground
     With showers, and frosts, with love and awe.

No one need pride himself upon Genius, for it is the free-gift of God; but of honest Industry and true devotion to his destiny any man may well be proud; indeed, this thorough integrity of purpose is itself the Divine Idea in its most common form, and no really honest mind is without communion with God Fichte.
