Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Chapter 12: voices of the night (search)
of to-day could record in his note-books an equally continuous course of mild festivities. There are weeks when he never spends an evening at home. He often describes himself as gloomy, but the gloom is never long visible. He constantly walks in and out of Boston, or drives to Brookline or Jamaica Plain; and whist and little suppers are never long omitted. Lowell was not as yet promoted to his friendship because of youth, nor had he and Holmes then been especially brought together, but Prescott, Sumner, Felton, and others constantly appear. He draws the line at a fancy ball, declining to costume himself for that purpose; and he writes that he never dances, but in other respects spends his evenings after his own inclination.

fizer's Junggesell. A scrap of newspaper, bearing the seal of the State of New York with the motto Excelsior, suggested the poem of that name. The Skeleton in Armor was included within the book and was originally to have given the title to it. Prescott, the historian, said that this poem and the Hesperus were the best imaginative poems since Coleridge's Ancient Mariner. Reading the tenth chapter of Mark in Greek, Longfellow thought of Blind Bartimeus. He wrote to his father that he liked thming poem about The Flowers' Revenge (Der Blumen Rache ). He just missed seeing Uhland, the only German poet then more popular than Freiligrath; he visited camps of 50,000 troops and another camp of naturalists at Mayence. Meantime, he heard from Prescott, Sumner, and Felton at home; the Spanish Student went through the press, and his friend Hawthorne was married. He finally sailed for home on October 22, 1842, and occupied himself on the voyage in writing a small volume of poems on slavery.
