f the spiritual world—a doctrine held in connection with utter abhorrence of spiritism—is a fundamental tenet. Neither the Unitarian nor the Trinitarian view of the Divine Being is held; but He is believed to be of one person, with the attributes of Father, Son, and Spirit united in Him as are the soul, the body, and the outgoing life in man. The title New-Jerusalem is not used in an exclusive sense, but as descriptive of Christianity freed from the material conceptions of the past. Emanuel Swedenborg is regarded as a divinely authorized interpreter of the Scriptures to the rational mind of this age. This interpretation he everywhere rests on the basis of science, which, in its essential form, he understood before he advanced to philosophy. The curriculum of the school is arranged for three years; the Scriptures in the original tongues are studied through the course; the spiritual interpretation of Scripture, the history of religion, the New-Church theology, and the work of the m

he fact that still earlier women novelists wrote the novel of adventure, as their successors are again doing. There lies before me one of the vast folio romances of Mlle. Scuderi, published, like most of hers, under her brother's name, and translated into English by Henry Cogan in 1674. It is in four parts, each divided into five books, and each book as long as half the novels of these degenerate days. The most lonely and athletic student, to adopt Emerson's phrase as to the readers of Swedenborg, could now hardly get through two successive books of it; yet such colossal romances were read with delight by our ancestors and ancestresses, even on this side of the water, though doubtless somewhat surreptitiously in the Puritan households. The plot flows as languidly as a Dutch river, and is as much distributed and subdivided by artificial dams and placid inundations; yet it is a woman's book; and the plots of Mlle. Scuderi's stories were sufficiently exciting, at any rate, to cause

In the summer of 1851 she turned her face westward. The call of husband, children, home, was imperative; yet so deep was the spell which Rome had laid upon her that the parting was fraught with pain, amounting almost to anguish. She was oppressed by the thought that she might never again see all that had grown so dear. Looking back upon this time, she says, I have indeed seen Rome and its wonders more than once since that time, but never as I saw them then. The homeward voyage was made in a sailing-vessel, in company with Mr. and Mrs. Mailliard. They were a month at sea. In the long quiet mornings Julia read Swedenborg's Divine love and wisdom; in the afternoons Eugene Sue's Mysteres de Paris, borrowed from a steerage passenger. There was whist in the evening; when her companions had gone to rest she would sit alone, thinking over the six months, weaving into song their pleasures and their pains. The actual record of this second Roman winter is found in Passion flowers.

or take part in the society which had charmed me principally through its unlikeness to any that I had known elsewhere. I have indeed seen Rome and its wonders more than once since that time, but never as I saw them then. I made the homeward voyage with my sister Annie and her husband in an old-fashioned Havre packet. We were a month at sea, and after the first days of discomfort I managed to fill the hours of the long summer days with systematic occupation. In the mornings I perused Swedenborg's Divine Love and Wisdom. In the afternoon I read, for the first and only time, Eugene Sue's Mysteres de Paris, which the ship's surgeon borrowed for me from a steerage passenger. In the evening we played whist; and when others had retired for the night, I often sat alone in the cabin, meditating upon the events and lessons of the last six months. These lucubrations took form in a number of poems, which were written with no thought of publication, but which saw the light a year or two la

h no preconceived notion of the import and importance of German literature, so I may say that I first received Christianity in the way natural to one of my birth and education. I have since been called upon to confront the topic in many ways. Swedenborg's theory of the divine man, Parker's preaching, the Boston Radical Club, Frank Abbot's depreciating comparison of Jesus with Socrates,—after following unfoldings of this wonderful panorama, I must say that the earliest view is that which I holdo much in my mind that, when we sat down to our two o'clock dinner, my husband would sometimes ask: Have you got those elephants over the river yet? alluding to Hannibal and the Punic war. Prior to these Latin studies, I read a good deal in Swedenborg, and was much fascinated by his theories of spiritual life. I remember Heaven and Hell, Divine Love and Wisdom, and Conjugal Love as the writings which interested me most; but the cumbrous symbolism of his Bible interpretation finally shut my

o recognize especially within these limits the superstition and intolerance which have been the bane of all religions—this disposition, which was frequently manifested both in the essays presented and in their discussion, offended not only my affections, but also my sense of justice. I had indeed been led to transcend the limits of the old tradition; I had also devoted much time to studies of philosophy, and had become conversant with the works of Auguste Comte, Hegel, Spinoza, Kant, and Swedenborg. Nothing of what I had heard or read had shaken my faith in the leadership of Christ in the religion which makes each man the brother of all, and God the beneficent father of each and all,—the religion of humanity. Neither did this my conviction suffer any disturbance through the views presented by speakers at the Radical Club. Setting this one point aside, I can but speak of the club as a high congress of souls, in which many noble thoughts were uttered. Nobler than any special view

er things, My dear Madam, God is working all the time in his shirt-sleeves with all his might. This dear man was a great addition to the thought-power current in Boston society. He had lived much abroad, and was for many years a student of Swedenborg and of Fourier. His cast of mind was more metaphysical than logical, and he delighted in paradox. In his writings he would sometimes overstate greatly, in order to be sure of impressing his meaning upon his readers or hearers. Himself a devoy, geniality, and good-will. I found afterwards that my Maud had seriously resented the epithet wicked looking applied to her, and had simply sought to take a childish revenge in accusing Mr. James of ugliness. Although Mr. James held much to Swedenborg's point of view, he did not belong to the Swedenborgian denomination. I have heard that, on the contrary, he was considered by its members as decidedly heterodox. I think that he rarely attended any church services. I have heard of his holdi
