's fame to the civilized world. When he visited Europe with this deed of merit put upon his record, it was as one whom high and low should delight to honor. Mr. Emerson somewhere speaks of the romance of some special philanthropy. Dr. Howe's life became an embodiment of this romance. Like all inspired men, he brought into therformance my sister said to me, It seems to make us better to see anything so beautiful. This remark recalls the oft-quoted dialogue between Margaret Fuller and Emerson apropos of Fanny Elssler's dancing:— Margaret, this is poetry. Waldo, this is religion. I remember, years after this time, a talk with Theodore Parker, iour country in general. He said that we had contributed nothing of value to the world of letters. Yet we had already given it the writings of Irving, Hawthorne, Emerson, Longfellow, Bryant, and Poe. It is true that these authors were little, if at all, known in France at that time; but the speaker, proposing to instruct the publi

Andrews Norton regarded her with holy horror. Another illustrated a passage from Mr. Emerson's essay on Nature—I play upon myself.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, he said, had excused himself from attendance on the ground that he was occupied in writie in spirit, although somewhat startling in its conclusions. At that time the remembrance of Mr. Emerson's Phi Beta address was fresh in my mind. This discourse of Parker's was a second glimpse of <

owers, was published by Ticknor and Fields, without my name. In the choice and arrangement of the poems James T. Fields had been very helpful to me. My lack of experience had led me to suppose that my incognito might easily be maintained, but in this my expectations were disappointed. The authorship of the book was at once traced to me. It was much praised, much blamed, and much called in question. From the highest literary authorities of the time it received encouraging commendation. Mr. Emerson acknowledged the copy sent him, in a very kind letter. Mr. Whittier did likewise. He wrote, I dare say thy volume has faults enough. For all this, he spoke warmly of its merits. Prescott, the beloved historian, made me happy with his good opinion. George Ripley, in the New York Tribune, Edwin Whipple and Frank Sanborn in Boston, reviewed the volume in a very genial and appreciative spirit. I think that my joy reached its height when I heard Theodore Parker repeat some of my lines fr

s Freeman Clarke, and Edward Everett Hale; the presence of leading authors,—Holmes, Longfellow, Emerson, and Lowell,—all these circumstances combined have given to Massachusetts a halo of glory which I have made some record of it in a poem entitled The Flag, which I dare mention here because Mr. Emerson, on hearing it, said to me, I like the architecture of that poem. Prominent among the helpwell represented, but its foremost artists, publicists, and literary men were also present. Mr. Emerson had come on from Concord. Christopher Cranch united with other artists in presenting to the even years and consequent inability to travel. Dr. Holmes read his verses very effectively. Mr. Emerson spoke rather vaguely. For my part in the evening's proceedings, I will once more quote from congratulation, spoke of me as she who has written the most stirring lyric of the war. After Mr. Emerson's remarks my poem was announced. I stepped to the middle of the platform, and read it well,

Mr. Emerson had a brief connection with the Radical Cluthe Prophet of New England. In remembering Mr. Emerson, we should analyze his works sufficiently ttures of the ideal which we are to follow. Mr. Emerson objected strongly to newspaper reports of te an agency in the great church universal. Mr. Emerson's principal objection to the reports was thd among its speakers.

Upon this principle, which of ore Parker once said to me, I do not consider Emerson a philosopher, but a poet lacking the accomplbering. There is something of the vates in Mr. Emerson.

n Clarke, and William R. Alger attended all my readings. After the first one, Mr. Clarke said to me, You have touched too many chords. After hearing my thesis on Duality of Character, he took my hand in his, and said, Oh! you sweet soul! Mr. Emerson was not among my hearers, but expressed some interest in my undertaking, and especially in my lecture on The Third Party. Meeting me one day, he said, You have in this a mathematical idea. This was in my opinion the most important lecture of the church. My eldest daughter, then a girl of sixteen, said to me as we left the church, Mamma, I should think that Mr. James would wish the little Jameses not to wash their faces for fear it should make them suppose that they were clean. Mr. Emerson, to whom I repeated this remark, laughed quite heartily at it. In anecdote Mr. James was inexhaustible. His temperament was very mercurial, almost explosive. I remember a delightful lecture of his on Carlyle. I recall, too, a rather metaphy

ol. Nevertheless, the transcendentals of Boston did not come within either his literary or his social sympathies. I never heard him express any admiration for Mr. Emerson. He may, indeed, have done so at a later period; for Mr. Emerson in the end won for himself the heart of New England, which had long revolted at his novelties Mr. Emerson in the end won for himself the heart of New England, which had long revolted at his novelties of thought and expression. Mr. Dana's ideal evidently was Washington Allston, for whom his attachment amounted almost to worship. The pair were sometimes spoken of in that day as two old-world men who sat by the fire together, and upheld each other in aversion to the then prevailing state of things. I twice had the pleasure oto the study of painting, for which he had more taste than talent. It was as a word artist that he was remarkable; and his graphic felicities of expression led Mr. Emerson to quote him as the first conversationalist in America, an eminence which I, for my part, should have been more inclined to accord to Dr. Holmes.
