y to school, under the guidance of Edward Everett, then to the East and West Indies as supercargo, then into business, but not very successfully as yet. This pursuit he hated and disapproved; all his tastes were for art, in which he was at that time perhaps the best connoisseur in Boston, and he had contrived by strict economy to own several good paintings which he bequeathed later to the Boston Art Museum,--a Reynolds, a Van der Velde, and a remarkable oil copy of the Sistine Madonna by Moritz Retzsch. These were the first fine paintings I had ever seen, except the Copleys then in the Harvard College Library, and his society, with that he assembled round him, was to me a wholly new experience. He disapproved and distrusted all classical training, and was indifferent to mathematics; but he had read largely in French and German literature, and he introduced me to authors of permanent interest, such as Heine and Paul Louis Courier. He was also in a state of social revolt, enhanced by

were quite curious. . . . . In all respects I found him well-informed, in some learned, and he was truly agreeable, because it was plain he desired to be so. His establishment is very elegant and luxurious, and his study, where he received me, looked truly scholar-like and comfortable. Among other things he showed me a beautiful collection of drawings in an album, relating to Dante, which had been from time to time given to him by his family, all original, of course, and two or three by Retzsch, of the greatest vigor and beauty, and executed in pencil with the most delicate finish. January 10.—This evening happened the first grand court ball; for the season of Carnival, from Christmas to Lent, is the season into which all the amusements, both at the Court and in private houses, are crowded, Frequent extracts are given from the journal describing these court receptions and fetes, because even then they had a flavor of bygone times about them, and because they were the only la

: Dresden. Prince John. Count Circourt. Von Raumer. Retzsch. Journal. January 20.—I passed an hour this forenoon verresentative of an age long gone by. From Tiedge's I went to see Retzsch, the author of the famous designs for Faust, Schiller, and Shakespnly perceptible. . . . . February 4.—This morning we spent with Retzsch. He had promised to bring in his wife's album, and he was as goodnd graceful in his genius. Mr. Ticknor afterwards obtained from Retzsch a repetition of one of these drawings. February 6.—This eveninthe whole a very interesting evening. I spent one forenoon with Retzsch, whose genius and simplicity I admire more, the more I know him; aused several similar incidents. Of painters there are enough. Retzsch, though his coloring is bad, is undoubtedly at the head of the whot genial, original, and interesting persons I have ever known; but Retzsch has not been formed by Dresden, and has had but little influence o<
