re may be at the most a little uncertainty as to which are merely indispensable parts of the picture. The source and first suggestion of Plato's imagery is an interesting speculation, but it is of no significance for the interpretation of the thought. Cf. John Henry Wright, “The Origin of Plato's Cave” in Harvard Studies in Class. Phil. xvii. (1906) pp. 130-142. Burnet, Early Greek Philosophy, pp. 89-90, thinks the allegory Orphic.

three Ellets at Memphis Southern coast. The Alabama and her kind, as already said, counted for nought, excepting as their exploits should influence European opinion and action. The destruction they caused was a property destruction only, not a destruction of naval power, which was what really counted. And the actual property destruction was finally found to amount to less than ten million dollars, or not more than the fiftieth part of that endured by San Francisco in the catastrophe of 1906. It was not until the ironclad came upon the scene that the Federal cause was in jeopardy. The frigate Merrimac was sunk at Norfolk when the navy-yard was so unfortunately yielded through the administration's unwillingness to use its strength, and the thousands of cannon there in store, along with those at Pensacola, went to arm the Confederacy. With immense energy on the part of the Southern officers, the Merrimac was raised, her upper decks removed, and the ship reconstructed as an arm
stly its superior in numbers and so superbly armed and equipped? I do not enter upon the contested question of the numbers serving in the respective armies. Colonel Livermore's Numbers and losses in the Civil War is the authority relied upon usually by writers on the Northern side; but his conclusions have been strongly, and as many of us think, successfully challenged by Cazenove G. Lee, in a pamphlet entitled Acts of the Republican Party as Seen by History, and published (in Winchester, 1906) under the pseudo C. Gardiner. How could an agricultural people, unskilled in the mechanical arts, therefore unable to supply properly its armies with munitions and clothing, prevail against a great, rich, manufacturing section like the North, whose foreign and domestic trade had never been so prosperous as during the great war it was waging from 1861 to 1865? Remember, also, that by May, 1862, the armies of the Union were in permanent occupancy of western and middle Tennessee, of nearly t

the three in the former slave States, subsequently caused me some legal difficulties on account of the Government donations. They did before emancipation and are still doing noble work for the negro population. The enrollment of Wilberforce for 1906 is 400 students with 30 on the board of instruction, Its industrial division, including that of hospital and trained nurses, is extensive. 26. There was one thriving school of the grammar grade in Atlanta, Ga., called the Storrs school. When Ial assets have reached (1907) $2,227,047.77. The institution named Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute is a success. Its academic and industrial training are going on, hand in hand. One item is full of encouragement: During the college year 1906-7, $8,233 were paid by the students themselves in entrance fees and chapel collections. From Mr. Washington's effort and example, more than a score of kindred smaller schools which did not before exist have been set in motion in Alabama alone.

at Newport, he and his family came there to live and his children were very anxious to see me, because they had heard so much about their father's guardian. Continuing these notes about his college career, he says:— My greatest peculiarity was an inordinate passion for books—of any sort—great and small, heavy and light, useful or useless, nothing came amiss and I probably accomplished, in the first 13 years of my life, more miscellaneous reading than most youths of eighteen. In 1906, Colonel Higginson wrote on the fly-leaf of one of his old textbooks (Professor Peirce's Elementary Treatise on Curves, Functions, and Forces):— When I left college at graduation in 1841, a few months short of 18, I was the best mathematician in the class, and Prof. Peirce. . . had me placed at once on the examining committee in that department. We studied this book in sheets as it came unbound from the press and I enjoyed it, and used to give my elder brother Waldo (Harvard, 1833) w

ty to attend church semi-occasionally, both summer and winter. His family rallied him for sleeping through the sermon, but in such cases it always happened that he had remembered more of the discourse than any of those who criticized him. The 1906 diary records:— Feb. 12. Evening at North End school—very turbulent—Italian boys, but I enjoyed talking to them, until I read from Army Life which was a mistake. Never read before children. Mar. 12. Boston before legislative committce of perhaps 250 in hard storm. June 28. Phi Beta Kappa. At meeting, gave notice of amendment next year in regard to women's admission to dinner. Two grandchildren came to cheer these later days, the first a boy named Wentworth born in 1906, of whom he wrote:— The beautiful and happy baby makes my health or illness a secondary trifle—if I can only pass quietly away without those melancholy intermediate days or weeks when I may be only a burden. And at Ipswich, two years late

Bibliography This bibliography, based on a manuscript notebook of Thomas Wentworth Higginson, was originally compiled by the Cambridge Public Library, in 1906, in honor of the author's eighty-third birthday. This list has been revised and brought up to date by Colonel Higginson's private secretary. It does not aim to include all of his writings, but only the more important ones. In the following list the place in parenthesis under the year indicates where Higginson resided during that time. Def.
