uties of a minister's wife. After spending a delightful day with her I came here to the beautiful Dingle, which is more enchanting than ever. I am staying with Mrs. Edward Cropper, Lord Denman's daughter. I want you to tell Aunt Mary that Mr. Ruskin lives with his father at a place called Denmark Hill, Camberwell. He has told me that the gallery of Turner pictures there is open to me or my friends at any time of the day or night. Both young and old Mr. Ruskin are fine fellows, sociable aMr. Ruskin are fine fellows, sociable and hearty, and will cordially welcome any of my friends who desire to look at their pictures. I write in haste, as I must be aboard the ship tomorrow at eight o'clock. So good-by, my dear girls, from your ever affectionate mother. Her last letter written before sailing was to Lady Byron, and serves to show how warm an intimacy had sprung up between them. It was as follows:-- June 5, 1857. Dear friend,--I left you with a strange sort of yearning, throbbing feeling — you make me feel qu

After the book was published in England, Mr. Ruskin wrote to Mrs. Stowe :-- Well, I have read the book now, and I think nothing can be nobler than the noble parts of it (Mary's great speech to Colonel Burr, for instance), nothing wiser than the wise parts of it (the author's parenthetical

age in the letter that most strikes me is this; We have in school a lovely girl from the country. She is rustic, shy, lovely, and dainty. She reminds me of what Ruskin says somewhere, that perhaps the time will come when we shall say, He has beautiful manners; he is really quite rustic. I dare say that this writer may not know, for she may not have been in France just at that time, how a good deal of what Ruskin suggests as possible became actual during the last French Empire. A friend of mine who was in Paris during that period was repeating to an accomplished Frenchman a delicate witticism. Ha! said his hearer, that is admirable — that smacks oflth under Louis Napoleon, that it had become the habit to attribute any very fine touch of wit or manners to the country instead of, as formerly, to the city. In Ruskin's phrase, these things were considered really quite rustic. My friend the teacher speaks for the West. In the secluded plantation life of the Southern States

ancy, and that a vague general account would have been far better. Why describe the dress and appearance of an Indian chief, down to his tobacco-stopper and buttonholes? We now see that it is this very habit which has made Cooper's Indian a permanent figure in literature, while the Indians of his predecessor, Charles Brockden Brown, were merely dusky spectres. Poetry or romance, continued the Edinburgh Review, does not descend into the particulars, this being the same fallacy satirized by Ruskin, whose imaginary painter produced a quadruped which was a generalization between a pony and a pig. Balzac, who risked the details of buttons and tobacco pipes as fearlessly as Cooper, said of The Pathfinder, Never did the art of writing tread closer upon the art of the pencil. This is the school of study for literary landscape painters. He says elsewhere: If Cooper had succeeded in the painting of character to the same extent that he did in the painting of the phenomena of nature, he would

ary self-revelation is to be found, perhaps, in his work entitled Letters of John Ruskin, published in 1904, and going back to his first invitation from the elder Ru on Norton's first direct trip to Europe, followed by a correspondence in which Ruskin writes to him, February 25, 1861, You have also done me no little good, and otAmerican Civil War; but it is pleasant to find that after ten months of silence Ruskin wrote to Norton again, if bitterly. Later still, we find successive letters adh the contest is won. Not all completed, however, for in the last years of life Ruskin addressed Darling Charles, and the last words of his own writing traced in penc peculiar associations of his boyhood and has found them still the best. While Ruskin was pitying him for being doomed to wear out his life in America, Norton with literary executor or editor of several important men of letters, as of Carlyle, Ruskin, Lowell, Curtis, and Clough; and that in each case the work was done with absol
