John Harrison Wilson, The life of Charles Henry Dana, Chapter 3: community life (search)
rectness of the sentiments quoted above, we must admit that they are expressed in clear and vigorous prose, which it would be difficult to improve. But our aspiring writer did not content himself with prose. Indeed, the family tradition is that, under the guidance of a favorite aunt, he began to write poetry at the early age of eight. Some of his lines are still occasionally quoted by his daughters. After his connection was made with Brook Farm he resumed the practice, and as early as April, 1842, contributed to the Dial a poem of fifteen lines entitled Herzliebste. This was followed in July by one of fourteen lines on Eternity. The next year he wrote for the same paper Manfulness and Via Sacra. In 1844 he wrote a touching tribute of sixteen lines to his friend Robert Bartlett, who had been reported as dead, also another to Edelfrida. Throughout the year 1845 his muse seems to have been more prolific, for he published in the Harbinger Auf Wiedlersehen, which was followed by a

n so regularly with neither passions nor feelings to interrupt them—I shall never be so, I fear—for every now and then comes something and upsets me. Either a cloud that will pursue me—or sunbeam that I must pursue . . . and I sometimes sigh to see that I do not become calmer as I grow older. Even at this early age he declared, My great intellectual difficulty has been having too many irons in the fire. This was a trouble with which he was destined to contend always. A month later, in April, 1842, about the time that his mother and sisters removed to Brattleboro, Vermont, Wentworth transferred his belongings to Brookline where he was to teach the three sons of Mr. Perkins. He took with him a quantity of books which were throughout life inseparable companions in his wanderings. In preparation for this new position he had purchased a new flash vest! and reports, Promenaded the [Boston] streets in my silk attire till 7. Again, Took a walk after church— my new pants perfect. ...

ortant result of the campaign was the topographical survey of the glacier, recorded in the map published in Agassiz's second work on the glacier. At about this time there begin to be occasional references in his correspondence to a journey of exploration in the United States. Especially was this plan in frequent discussion between him and Charles Bonaparte, Prince of Canino, a naturalist almost as ardent as himself, with whom he had long been in intimate scientific correspondence. In April, 1842, the prince writes him: I indulge myself in dreaming of the journey to America in which you have promised to accompany me. What a relaxation! and at the same time what an amount of useful work. Again, a few months later, You must keep me well advised of your plans, and I, in my turn, will try so to arrange my affairs as to find myself free in the spring of 1844 for a voyage, the chief object of which will be to show my oldest son the country where he was born, and where man may develop

y from their offending members, the Society proceeded to administer its discipline. A complaint was laid before the Monthly Meeting of New-York, in which Isaac T. Hopper, James S. Gibbons, and Charles Marriott, were accused of being concerned in the publication and support of a paper calculated to excite discord and disunity among Friends. Friend Hopper published a statement, characterised by his usual boldness, and disturbed his mind very little about the result of their proceedings. April, 1842, he wrote thus, to his daughter, Sarah H. Palmer, of Philadelphia: During my late indisposition, I was induced to enter into a close examination of my own heart; and I could not find that I stood condemned there for the part I have taken in the anti-slavery cause, which has brought upon me so much censure from those who know not God, nor his son Jesus Christ. They profess that they know God, but in works they deny him. I have not yet given up our Society as lost. I still live in th
