815, evening. The pilot who is carrying us into Liverpool, told us of Bonaparte's return to Paris, and re-es arrival in England. In May, 1815, I arrived in Liverpool. When I left Boston, Bonaparte was in Elba, and acrisis of their national affairs; but, on reaching Liverpool, I soon found that not a few people looked upon thd he had seen the repudiated article. While in Liverpool, Mr. Ticknor made the acquaintance of Mr. Roscoe, Of the acquaintances whom I found or formed in Liverpool, I know not that you will be much interested to hend his fine house (Allerton Hall, eight miles from Liverpool) is open to all strangers,—whose company he even sly interesting in an old man. Mr. Ticknor left Liverpool on the 17th of May, and arrived in London on the 2Mr. Roscoe had volunteered me a letter, but I left Liverpool half a day before I intended, and the consequence rfectly easy, for I shall run no risk ....

o be in London to make my purchases of English books, and finish all I have to do in Europe; and if I have any time left, I can stop at Oxford again on my way to Liverpool. . . . . I am very busy, not with study,—for I have not pretended to study a word regularly since I left Scotland,—but in making all my last preparations for running about myself, and I think in a fortnight I shall have everything of this sort done; and, though it is a pretty close calculation, think I shall arrive in Liverpool on the first of May. If it be possible to get a good ship for Boston, I should much prefer it, but rather than wait I would embark in one of the regular New Yoramily. whose kindness had followed me all over Europe, and turned from his door, I was assured that my face was now finally set to go home. . . . . My journey to Liverpool was as rapid as I could make it,. . . . and I arrived there on the morning of the 28th. . . . . I desired to see nobody but Mr. Roscoe, and with him I had the pl

proportionate value which he thus gave, in his own mind, to the different points of his experience, should not be wholly disregarded here; but the temptation is irresistible to fill many pages with the European journal, though only a very small part of the whole will appear. This journal includes 1,700 quarto pages. The journal of his first visit to Europe contains about the same number of smaller pages, more closely written. A prosperous voyage of twenty-five days from New York to Liverpool—not a long passage for those days of sailingves-sels—had an exciting conclusion, which Mr. Ticknor thus describes:— At the moment when, with a gentle breeze, we felt as if we should reach our port in a few hours, when, in fact, I was sitting quietly in the cabin, writing a letter to announce our arrival, the wind came out suddenly ahead, and almost at once blew a gale.

geworth herself, is her uncommon quickness of perception, her fertility of allusion, and the great resources of fact which a remarkable memory supplies to her, combined into a whole which I can call nothing else but extraordinary vivacity. She certainly talks quite as well as Lady Delacour or Lady Davenant, and much in the style of both of them, though more in that of Lady Davenant. . . . August 22.—It has been a rainy day to-day, the first, properly so, that we have had since we left Liverpool, nearly two months ago. I was heartily glad of it, for it prevented all talk of driving into a country essentially flat and uninteresting, and kept us in the most interesting and agreeable society. We did not really separate during the whole day, from breakfast, at nine, until bedtime, half after eleven. The whole time was passed in the library, except the breakfast, which was protracted to an hour's length by sitting round the table; lunch, which is really the dinner of most people;. .
