Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Cheerful Yesterdays, chapter 5 (search)
of bright young people was not strictly a part of the Transcendental Movement, it was yet born of the Newness. Lowell and Story, indeed, both wrote for The Dial, and Maria White had belonged to Margaret Fuller's classes. There was, moreover, passing through the whole community a wave of that desire for a freer and more ideal life which made Story turn aside from his father's profession to sculpture, and made Lowell forsake law after his first client. It was the time when Emerson wrote to Carlyle, We are all a little wild here with numberless projects of social reform; not a reading man but has a draft of a new community in his waistcoat pocket. I myself longed at times to cut free from prescribed bondage, and not, in Lowell's later phrase, to pay so much of life for a living as seemed to be expected. I longed anew, under the influence of George Sand and of Mrs. Child's Letters from New York, to put myself on more equal terms with that vast army of hand-workers who were ignorant o

years later than the time when he wrote, in the prospect of seeing Carlyle, Darwin, Tennyson, Browning, Tyndall, Huxley, Matthew Arnold, and ily, I had not then read. We met better upon a common interest in Carlyle, a few days later, and he took me to see that eminent author, and y, I described this occasion, and dwelt on the peculiar quality of Carlyle's laugh, which, whenever it burst out in its full volume, had the Nothing could well be more curious than the look and costume of Carlyle. He had been living in London nearly forty years, yet he had the near. The oldest boy, looking from one to another of us, selected Carlyle as the least formidable, and said, I say, mister, may we roll on this here grass?

r missed a word, even when he was not addressing me. His small size and endless vivacity made him look like a French Tom Moore. He told many stories about the revolution,--one of an occasion where flags were to be presented by the provincial government to the regiments, and he was assigned to the very tallest colonel, a giant in size, who at once lifted Louis Blanc in his arms and hugged him to his breast. The narrator acted this all out inimitably, and told other stories, at one of which Carlyle had once laughed so that he threw himself down and rolled on the floor, and Louis Blanc very nearly acted this out, also. He seemed wonderfully gentle and sweet for one who had lived through so much; and confirmed, without bitterness, the report I had heard that he had never fully believed in the National Workshops, which failed under his charge in 1848, but that they were put into his hands by a rival who wished them and him to fail. Everything at the meal was simple, as our hosts liv

rakemen, and passengers all kept recurring to the subject; everybody was going. As we drew near the end, the conductor singled me out as the only stranger and the probable lecturer, and burst into eager explanation. The president of the lyceum, he said, is absent from the village, and the vice-president, who will present you to the audience, is the engineer of this very train. So it turned out: the engineer introduced me with dignity and propriety; he proved to be a reader of Emerson and Carlyle, and he gave me a ride homeward on his locomotive the next morning. There was something pleasant, also, in the knowledge that the lecturer himself met the people as man to man; that he stood upon the platform to be judged and weighed. From the talk of his fellow travelers in the train, beforehand, he could know what they expected of him; and from the talk next morning, how he had stood the test. Wendell Phillips especially dreaded this last ordeal, and always went home after lecturing
