of the association, including Theodore Parker, George William Curtis. Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles A. Dana. Elizabeth P. Peabody, Margaret Fuller, and others. The association was organized in 1841, the farm purchased. and by the following spring its plan was fairly in working order. It was then known simply as the West Roxbury Community, Brook Farm being the name of the place owned by the society. A quarterly journal called the Dial was carried on by the members of the society. In December, 1843. a convention of reformers of various grades was held in Boston. to discuss the ideas of Fourier, which had just become known in this country. The result was the conversion of all the Brook Farmers to Fourierism, and the transformation of their simple community into a Fourierist phalanx, under the name of the Brook Farm Association. The leaders of this movement were George Ripley. Minot Pratt, and Charles A. Dana. The land owned by the association at this time aggregated 208 acres,

St. Louis he was several times surrounded by the Blackfeet Indians, who, when they saw his crucifix and black gown, showed him the greatest respect. On Sept. 24, 1841, with a party of other missionaries he reached Bitter Root River, where the mission of St. Mary's was begun. After spending about a year in learning the Blackfeet language and in endeavoring to make St. Mary's a permanent mission, he went to Europe to solicit aid. After arousing great enthusiasm in Belgium and France he sailed from Antwerp in December, 1843, with five Jesuits and six sisters, and in August, 1844, arrived at Fort Van couver, and planted a central mission o the Willamette River. In 1845 he undertook a series of missions among the Sinpoils, Zingomenes, Okenaganes, Kootenays, and Flatbows. He made severe trips to Europe for aid.

o be quite so zealous or unselfish for the faith as were some of the others, though his speeches in Boston and elsewhere were most effective. Dana was at that time a very young man, with the faults, but with all the splendor and promise, of youth. No one has criticized the fidelity of his work at the school, and no one, not excepting Ripley, spoke more fervidly than Dana in the cause of association. He was wise, if not wholly ingenuous, for he had the sagacity, at the meeting held in December, 1843, to advocate a continuance of associationism for Brook Farm, while the followers of Brisbane, bringer of huge programmes and unnumbered woes, proclaimed the virtues of modified Fourierism. Dana lost the toss, but did not forsake the field. On the contrary, even after the flames of the Phalanstery swelt up vertically the holes of five years, he still valiantly preached the faith delivered to the saints. As a mature man the great editor found so few causes on which he could lavish his

Boston Advertiser, Nov. 14 and 27, 1844. Sumner spoke ten hours,—beginning on Thursday, and ending the next day. Franklin Dexter, one of the leaders of the bar, was the counsel on the other side. He filed a motion to set aside the verdict; but before the court passed upon it the case was settled by the parties. Sumner made a formidable brief of the law. Mr. Dexter, in filing one which only stated his points, wrote him that his junior would ornament it with authorities. Sumner had in December, 1843, argued the equity suit, which Judge Story decided adversely to him. Boston Advertiser, Dec. 23, 1843. The Judge, who was firmly opposed to his view of the case, and ruled against him on the most important points during the trial of the action at law, was vexed at his persistency. In this prolonged litigation, Sumner showed his power as a lawyer to better advantage than in any legal controversy in which he was ever engaged. It involved labor, research, the massing of testimony, th

yette, who was so pleased with her that he asked if he could be of any service to her. Yes, said she, you can get my son into West Point. Upon this Lafayette wrote to Bernard, our then chief engineer, and the appointment of a cadet came to me. Horace entered West Point in 1831, and graduated in 1835. Mrs. Brooks lived with him at West Point, when he was Lieutenant Brooks, from 1836 to 1839. In 1840 she was with him at Fort Hamilton, N. Y. She sailed for Cuba, the last time, in December, 1843. She died at Matanzas, Cuba, Nov. 11, 1845, and was buried at Limonal, Horace says, by the side of my two brothers. It is probable that one of these was a half-brother, son of her sister, Lucretia. Mrs. Brooks' son Edgar became a planter in Cuba, and died during the life of his mother. (See her Ode.) Horace, after going through the Mexican War, the Kansas War, and the Rebellion, retired from active service in 1877, having reached the age limit. He was brevetted Major and Lieu
