Chapter 17: writers on American history, 1783-1850 For a more extended treatment of the historians of the period, see the author's Middle group of American historians (1917). The Revolutionary War gave our historians new motives for writing. A glorious struggle was to be described; the states, just raised out of the rank of colonies, began to demand the preservation of their earliest history; and the nation, inspired by great hopes for the future, felt that it must have loyal men to prepare the record of common growth and common achievement. The men who responded to these impulses were, perhaps, less cultured than the best of the old historians. It was long before there appeared among them one who could be ranked with Hutchinson, though some of them wrote well and displayed great industry. The stream was wider than formerly, but it was not so deep. Of those who wrote about the Revolution, in one phase or another, the best were the Rev. William Gordon, Dr. David Ramsay,
of the dullest observer. Yet they have been accomplished within the lifetime of a single man of letters. The author of one of the many campaign biographies of Lincoln in 1860 was William Dean Howells, then an Ohio journalist of twenty-three. In 1917, at the age of eighty, Mr. Howells is still adding to his long row of charming and memorable books. Every phase of American writing since the middle of the last century has fallen under the keen and kindly scrutiny of this loyal follower of the adianapolis was high Heaven's sole and only under-study. No one has ever had the audacity to say that of New York. We have had American drama for one hundred and fifty years, Representative American plays, edited by Arthur Hobson Quinn, N. Y., 1917. but much of it, like our popular fiction and poetry, has been subliterary, more interesting to the student of social life and national character than to literary criticism in the narrow sense of that term.

The noble utterances of the President of the United States should grip and grasp every fibre of our being. A greater day is coming. On May 21st the Historical Society held its regular meeting, the last of the season of 1916-17. Its charter bears date of May 22, 1896, and the names of nine persons are therein written. Of these, seven are still living and six were present at this meeting, which, considering proximity of date, took the form of an anniversary occasion, as in fact the Society has rounded out its minority years and is now of age. Additional interest attached to the occasion as the exterior of the new home at 10 Governors avenue is now practically complete. Within a few days the scaffolding about
