Poe, Cooper, and Anthon were his youthful hatreds. According to Colonel Higginson, the Professor was the best all-round man at Brook Farm, but was held not to be quite so zealous or unselfish for the faith as were some of the others, though his spebstinate assertions with some of the pears named in Mr. Downing's catalogue.
