James Parton, The life of Horace Greeley, Chapter 5: at Westhaven, Vermont. (search)
little money and when a pedler came along with books in his wagon, Horace was pretty sure to be his customer. Yet he was only half a Yankee. He could earn money, but the bargaining faculty he had not. What did he read? Whatever he could get. But his preference was for history, poetry, and—newspapers. He had read, as I have before mentioned, the whole Bible before he was six years old. He read the Arabian Nights with intense pleasure in his eighth year; Robinson Crusoe in his ninth; Shakspeare in his eleventh; in his twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth years, he read a good many of the common, superficial histories—Robertson's, Goldsmith's, and others—and as many tales and romances as he could borrow. At Westhaven, as at Amherst, he roamed far and wide in search of, books. He was fortunate, too, in living near the mansion-house before mentioned, the proprietor of which, it appears, took some interest in Horace, and, though he would not lend him books, allowed him to come to th<

State Register. Another letter from the same friend contains information still more valuable. Judging, he writes, from what I do certainly know of him, I can say that few young men of my acquaintance grew up with so much freedom from everything of a vicious and corrupting nature—so strong a resolution to study everything in the way of useful knowledge—and such a quick and clear perception of the queer an & humorous, whether in print or in actual life His love of the poets—Byron, Shakspeare, etc., discovered itself in Boyhood—and often have Greeley and I strolled off into the woods, of a warm day, with a volume of Byron or Campbell in our pockets, and reclining in some shady place, read it off to each other by the hour. In this way, I got such a hold of Childe Harold, the Pleasures of Hope, and other favorite poems, that considerable portions have remained ever since in my memory.

Lecturing, of late years, has become, in this country, what is facetiously termed an institution. And whether we regard it as a means of public instruction, or as a means of making money, we cannot deny that it is an institution of great importance. The bubble reputation, said Shakspeare. Reputation is a bubble no longer. Reputation, it has been discovered, will draw. Reputation alone will draw! That airy nothing is, through the instrumentality of the new institution, convertible into solid cash, into a large pile of solid cash. Small fortunes have been made by it in a single winter, by a single lecture or course of lectures.

f America, and have dared and done somewhat to that end. How much he dared in the case of this enlargement may be inferred from the fact that it involved an addition of $1,044 to the weekly, $54,329 to the annual, expenses of the concern. Yet he dared not add a cent to the price of the paper, which it is thought he might have done with perfect safety, because those who like the Tribune like it very much, and will have it at any price. Men have been heard to talk of their Bible, their Shakspeare, and their Tribune, as the three necessities of their spiritual life; while those who dislike it, dislike it excessively, and are wont to protest that they should deem their houses defiled by its presence. The Tribune, however, stepped bravely out under its self-imposed load of white paper. In one year the circulation of the Daily increased from 17,640 to 26,880, the Semi-Weekly from 3,120 to 11,400, the Weekly from 51,000 to 103,680, the California Tribune from 2,800 to 3,500, and the

She said, a distinction ought to be made between those who investigate the phenomena as phenomena, and those who embrace them fanatically. Yes, said he, I have no objection to their being investigated by those who have more time than I have. Have you heard, asked the lady, of the young man who personates Shakspeare? No, he replied, but I am satisfied there is no folly it will not run into. Then he rose, and said, Take off your things and go up stairs. must get some supper, for I have to go to that meeting at the Tabernacle, to-night, (anti-Nebraska.) As I passed the hat-stand in the hall, I said, Here is that immortal white coat. He smiled and said, People suppose it's the same old coat, but it is n't. I looked questioningly, and he continued, The original white coat came from Ireland
