Sir Richard C. Jebb, Commentary on Sophocles: Antigone, Introduction (search)
school against classical restraint. Donner had recently published his German translation of Sophocles, ‘in the metres of the original,’ and the Antigone was chosen for the experiment. Mendelssohn accepted with enthusiasm the task of writing the music. The rapidity with which he worked may be estimated from the fact that Sept. 9, 1841, seems to have been about the date at which Tieck first broached the idea to him, and that the first full stage rehearsal took place some six weeks later,—on October 22nd. The success of the music in Germany seems to have been immediate and great; rather more than could be said of the first performance in London, when the Antigone, with the new music, was brought out at Covent Garden, on Jan. 2, 1845. The orchestra on that occasion, indeed, had a conductor no less able than the late Sir G Macfarren; but the Chorus was put on the stage in a manner of which a graphic memorial has been preserved to usOn March 25, 1845, Mendelssohn wrote to his sister:—‘See

count of his entire business relations with Knapp, in a long letter to Ms. May 15, 1842; ante, 2.331. Elizabeth Pease, from which an extract has been already made. The decisive fact appears, that, in less than three months after the transfer had been made, Mr. Knapp failed in business, and conveyed all the property in his hands to his creditors, including his half-interest in the subscription-list of the Liberator. In the fall of 1841, Mr. Ellis Gray Loring effected a purchase of this Oct. 22, 1841; Lib. 12.3. interest for the sum of $25, in order to rid the paper of all embarrassment from a divided ownership. The refusal of this offer would have led to the issue of a new paper, on January 1, 1842, with the title of Garrison's Liberator; and the creditors, being informed of this, gladly consented to make a legal transfer to Mr. Garrison. Knapp's overtures to buy back his interest were of course not entertained. After we separated, continues Mr. Garrison, in reference Ms. May

1864. Edward Stanley Abbot. Second Lieutenant 17th United States Infantry, November 10, 1862; first Lieutenant, April 27, 1863; died July 8, 1863, of wounds received at Gettysburg, Pa., July 2. Edward Stanley Abbot was born at Boston, October 22, 1841, and was the son of Joseph Hale and Fanny Ellingwood (Larcom) Abbot. He was fitted for college partly at the Boston Latin School, the private Latin School of E. S. Dixwell, Esq., and Phillips Exeter Academy, and partly by an older brother. He entered Harvard College in July, 1860, after passing an excellent examination. In September, 1861, he was absent from College a short time on account of his health, and soon after his recovery began to devote his whole time to military study, with the design of becoming an officer in the Regular service. He closed his connections with the College in March, 1862, and went to the Military School at Norwich, Vermont, where he stayed about four months. On July 1, 1862, he enlisted at Fo
olunteers from May 6 to Nov. 9, 1861, because, although commissioned on Oct. 24, 1861, as Second Lieutenant, 4th U. S. Artillery, he did not accept the promotion until Nov. 9. In most cases the date of acceptance cannot here be given, because it is only recently that the annual Army Register has included it; but the apparent discrepancies in successive dates in this list proceed almost wholly from this cause, and are thus unavoidable.
