and, after some interval, James Russell Lowell and Charles Eliot Norton. The list of chief contributors to the first forty volumes of the Review, as appears from the Index published in 1878, would include, in addition to those already given, C. C. Felton, George Bancroft, H. W. Longfellow, and the elder Norton —— all Harvard instructors. Its connection with Cambridge was therefore well defined and unquestionable. Judge Story, then head of the Harvard Law School, who had for many years a hieight persons at this dinner, one-half of these being of Cambridge birth or residence, since Underwood had lately removed thither. Assuming that the meeting of May 20th was that of which Underwood speaks, we know that Longfellow, Underwood, and Felton were there, and probably Holmes and Lowell, so that this company also was half or almost half made up of Cantabrigians. At any rate, the two original editors, Lowell and Underwood, were Cantabrigians by residence; and Lowell could now transfer t

Here he formed an intimacy with Professor Felton, heartiest of Greek professors, as Dickens called him; and the circle was often enlarged by the society of Charles Sumner, then librarian of the Law School; ch are as inevitable and as innocent as similar companionships among artists or inventors. In this case, however, it was so emphatically insisted upon that, when Felton had praised, in the Christian Examiner, an article by Longfellow, some unknown hand indorsed the page at the Athenaeum Library, Insured at the Mutual.

For nearly two years I have not studied at night, save now and then. Most of the time am alone; smoke a good deal; wear a broad-brimmed black hat, bl

ding board, as was the custom of the times. It appears that early in May of that year the student had begun to feel the necessity for help, for on the 12th, C. C. Felton, professor of Greek, wrote him a letter which he kept all his life. It runs as follows: I hasten to answer your letter which reached me last evening. Uviewing my Latin and Greek together daily, or rather nightly, which is the only sort of instruction I have had since your absence began. Mr. Hosmer wrote to Professor Felton, of Cambridge, who replied that I need have no fears on the score of admission, as, under the circumstances, I might be allowed to make up deficiencies while the class. On January 16, 1840, after he had been at Cambridge nearly a half-year, Dana wrote to Dr. Flint: For my part, I am in the focus of what Professor Felton calls supersublimated transcendentalism, and to tell the truth, I take to it rather kindly though I stumble sadly at some notions. But there is certainly a

Do not think that I care to teach you this or the other special science. My instruction is only intended to show you the thoughts in nature which science reveals, and the facts I give you are useful only, or chiefly, for this object. . . . Agassiz had the cooperation not only of his brother-in-law, Professor Felton, but of others among his colleagues, who took classes in special departments, or gave lectures in history or literature. Among these additional instructors was Luigi Monti, the Young Sicilian of Longfellow's Wayside Inn, In sight of Etna born and bred, who was at the time teaching in Harvard College.
