chool and to become a private tutor in the family of his cousin, Stephen H. Perkins, of Brookline. The last days at Jamaica Plain he thus describes:— February 28. School for the last time—. . . Bid the boys good-bye quite satisfactorily—they are really sorry to lose me, and I felt so too. . . . Had a delightful evening till near II packing—then home and worked like a horse till I—taking up the carpet and everything else. March 1. Rose before 6 and fixed things. . . .We got Mrs. Putnam's ladder and the wardrobe slid down very easily. Wentworth now went to his mother's in Cambridge for a few weeks, whence he wrote, An exquisite soft spring day which would have cheered the soul of a lobster–and it did mine. A few days later he added, Assumed my Cambridge state of mind. . . . I certainly intend to try—and not give way to the causeless melancholy I have occasionally fallen into heretofore, and resolved to wake up from my dreams and work. All through these ear

I am writing behind the bar; many men here— they come up and read our names in the book and wonder what brings so many here from Worcester. One says, Higginson. He's the great abolitionist from Worcester, he who had the fuss in the U. S. Court—is that Theo. Brown beneath? It ought to be Theodore Parker. And in the delight which this excursion gave him, he exclaimed:—I am very happy and feel ready to mount up with wings as eagles. Mr. Higginson wrote an account of this expedition for Putnam's Magazine, the article purporting to be written by a woman. The author amused himself by sending a copy to each member of the party, that they might guess its origin. We did have a charming time on the trip to Mount Katahdin, he wrote. The 30 miles by water on our return, shooting the rapids, were the most exciting experiences I ever yet had. A later visit to Maine was of a different nature, for he spoke at Bangor on Kansas and the Union, the former being the bait and the latter t<

ages and Literatures and Professor of Belles Lettres in Harvard College. A few months were spent in Dresden in preparation for a course on German literature, and in the fall of 1856 he began twenty years work as a teacher. In the following year he was married to Frances Dunlap and resumed life in Elmwood. His professorship turned his mind to criticism and scholarship, but did not hasten that stronger poetic flight for which he had felt himself preparing. A brief-lived literary magazine, Putnam's monthly, in 1853-54 had given place to one or two of his best known essays, and a new literary enterprise, The Atlantic monthly, in 1857 gave further opportunity for his prose. Lowell was editor of the new magazine for two years and a regular contributor of reviews and articles until 1863, when he joined with Charles Eliot Norton in editing The North American review. For the next dozen years his essays both political and literary appeared mainly in this review. During the Civil War, L

sensational material of the thirties—old wine in new bottles. The annuals and all they stood for were passing rapidly. Putnam's magazine noted in February, 1853, the great change that had come over the literature for the holiday period. It used in Godey's lady's Book and Graham's magazine and the annuals and then to turn to Harper's magazine, established in 1850, Putnam's magazine, in 1853, and The Atlantic monthly, in 1857. In England it was the period of Dickens and Thackeray and Readfiction of the earlier type. A new demand had come to the short story writer; in the Introductory to the first volume of Putnam's magazine the editor announced that American writers and American themes were to predominate, adding that local reality the mood was upon him, temperamental, Celtic-souled material which he published here and there in the magazines—Harper's, Putnam's, the Atlantic, until, enlisting in one of the first regiments of volunteers, he fell in one of the earliest skirmishes

nd Army Posts of Boston, Mass., on Memorial Day, May 30, 1881, by Mr. George Riddle.] I. Oy to the three-hilled city!--for each year Heals something of the grief this day records; Each year the plaintive lay Sounds yet more far away, And strains of triumph suit memorial words. The old-time pang becomes a thrill of joy; Again we turn the page Of our heroic age, And read anew the tale of every patriot boy. A modest courage was their simple wont, The dauntless youths who grew to manhood here: Putnam and Savage, Perkins and Revere. It needs no helmet's gleam, No armor's glittering beam, No feudal imagery of shield or spear To gild the gallant deeds that roused us then,-- When Cass fell dying in the battle's front, And Shaw's fair head lay 'mid his dusky men. II. All o'er the tranquil land On this Memorial Day, Coming from near and far, Men gather in the mimic guise of war. They bear no polished steel, Yet by the elbow's touch they march, they wheel, Or side by side they stand. They no

Leave has been obtained to reprint the papers on Brown, Cooper, and Thoreau, from Carpenter's American prose, copyrighted by the Macmillan Company, 1898.

dity of political change has now thrown it into the background for all except the systematic student of history. It seemed to Mr. Atkinson, at any rate, his crowning work. The books published by Edward Atkinson were the following: The distribution of Profits, 1885; The industrial progress of the nation, 1889; The Margin of profit, 1890; Taxation and work, 1892; Facts and figures the basis of economic science, 1894. This last was printed at the Riverside Press, the others being issued by Putnam & Co., New York. He wrote also the following papers in leading periodicals: Is Cotton our King?

ly known, nor was it established for a long time after, -even when he had himself asserted it,--that the poet was himself born in Boston; and no one can now tell, perhaps, what was the real feeling behind the apparently sycophantic attitude. When, at the end, he abruptly began the recitation of his rather perplexing poem, everybody looked thoroughly mystified. The verses had long since been printed in his youthful volume, and had re-appeared within a few days, if I mistake not, in Wiley & Putnam's edition of his poems; and they produced no very distinct impression on the audience until Poe began to read the maiden's song in the second part. Already his tones had been softening to a finer melody than at first, and when he came to the verse,-- Ligeia! Ligeia, My beautiful one! Whose harshest idea Will to melody run, Oh! is it thy will On the breezes to toss? Or capriciously still Like the lone albatross Incumbent on night (As she on the air) To keep watch with delight On the harm
