Landor's hero was not happier than my playmate, Charles Parsons, and myself, as we lay under Lowell's willows at the causey's end, after a day at Mount Auburn,--then Sweet Auburn still,to sort out the imagination. Sometimes I had companions, -my elder brother for a time, and his classmates, Lowell and Story. I remember treading along close behind them once, as they discussed Spenser's Faerieer high-bred look, and overflowing with fun and frolic, as indeed he was during his whole life. Lowell was at that time of much more ordinary appearance, short and freckled, and a secondary figure bearties, usually at Mount Auburn, and showed in the chilly May mornings that heroic courage which Lowell plaintively attributes to children on these occasions. But all this sporting with Amaryllis soo

aracter in the greater world which was not represented more or less among my classmates, or dealt with any thought or principle which was not discussed in elementary form in our evening walks up Brattle Street. Harvard College was then a comparatively small affair, as was the village in which it existed; but both had their day of glory, which was Commencement Day, now a merely academic ceremonial, but then a public festival for eastern Massachusetts. It has been so well described by both Lowell and John Holmes that I will not dwell upon it in detail. The streets were filled with people, arriving from far and near; there were booths, fairs, horseraces, encampments of alleged gamblers in outlying groves. Perhaps the most striking single illustrations of the day's importance lay in the fact that the banks in Boston were closed on that day, and that Boston gentlemen, even if not graduates of the college, often came to Cambridge for a day or two, at that time, taking rooms and receiv

his own books, and it seemed to me that he must be like Wordsworth, as we find him in the descriptions of contemporaries,--a little too isolated in his daily life, and too much absorbed in the creations of his own fancy. Lord Houghton, his lifelong friend, said to me afterwards, Tennyson likes unmixed flattery. This I should not venture to say, but I noticed that when he was speaking of other men, he mentioned as an important trait in their character whether they liked his poems or not,--Lowell, he evidently thought, did not. Perhaps this is a habit of all authors, and it was only that Tennyson spoke out, like a child, what others might have concealed. He soon offered, to my great delight, to take me to the house of Mrs. Cameron, the celebrated amateur photographer, who lived close by. We at once came upon Mr. Cameron -a very picturesque figure, having fine white hair and beard, and wearing a dressing-gown of pale blue with large black velvet buttons, and a heavy gold chain. I

A letter Lib. 1.171. from Lowell, signed Revenge, promised assassination by poison or the dagger if the infamous Liberator should be published one month longer.

a he attended a meeting called by the Rev. Cyril Pearl, in aid of the Colonization Society, and so embarassed the agent by his questions and Lib. 2.167. impressed the audience by his appeal in opposition, that the vote was emphatically in the negative. The refutation was effectual, for a second attempt the next year in the same place by Pearl, during Mr. Garrison's absence in England, proved an even worse failure. The latter's tour at this time also embraced the towns of Newburyport, Lowell, and Salem (Lib. 2.167, 183, and Ms. letters of Arnold Buffum, Oct. 23, 24, 1832). In the Liberator announcing the editor's departure Lib. 2.87. for Philadelphia appeared the first advertisement of an octavo pamphlet of 240 pages, of which the full title read: Thoughts on African Colonization: or an impartial exhibition of the doctrines, principles and purposes of the American Colonization Society.
