htly to the careless eye, but the same fire burns within and deeper than ever, and he may be conquered, but never subdued. But if these beautiful hills, and wide, rich fields saw this sad lore well learned, they also saw some precious lessons given too, of faith, of fortitude, of self-command, and of less selfish love. There, too, in solitude, heart and mind acquired more power of concentration, and discerned the beauty of a stricter method. There the heart was awakened to sympathize with the ignorant, to pity the vulgar, and hope for the seemingly worthless; for a need was felt of realizing the only reality, the divine soul of this visible creation, which cannot err and will not sleep, which cannot permit evil to be permanent or its aim of beauty to be eventually frustrated in the smallest particular. Fuller Mss. II. 721. Before these last letters were written, she had left Groton, for a time, and had entered on the life of a teacher, first in Boston and then in Providence.

Here, during the last winter, she has beenret Fuller was ill for a time after reaching Providence, and wrote to Mr. Emerson in June, 1837: Conrience. The year after Margaret Fuller left Providence, we find her writing to her brother Arthur, She went for occasional brief visits from Providence to Boston, and it may be well to insert a pathe magic lantern also. Ms. Writing from Providence, August 14, 1837, she lays plans for her sume she yet felt its charms.

hen and perhaps now the most rural and attractive suburb of Boston. Here their dwelling was near a little stream, called Willow Brook, and there were rocks behind it covered with cardinal flowers. Margaret Fuller had with her two pupils from Providence; she was within easy reach of friends, and could at the same time renew that love of nature which Groton had first taught her, and which city-life had only suspended. From this time, many charming outdoor sketches appear among her papers. Inhociety, usually in Boston, where she sometimes took a room for the winter. Hawthorne, in his American-note books, records, under the date, November, 1840:-- I was invited to dine at Mr. Bancroft's yesterday with Miss Margaret Fuller; but Providence had given me some business to do, for which I was very thankful.

Besides these well-known contributors, she also applied to other literary friends, whose response apparently never came. Among them was her old friend at Providence, Albert G. Greene, then the recognized head of the literary society of that city. To him she writes, October 2, 1840: Where are the poems and essays, Pumpkin Monodies, and Militia Musters, we were promised? Send them, I pray, forthwith. Theswere the Rev. W. D. Wilson, who wrote The Unitarian movement in New England; the Rev. Thomas T.

-tempered feminine nature, yearning to be, to do, and to suffer, all at the same time, was supposed to model herself after the marble statue, Goethe. The charge was self-contradicting; and is worth naming only as being a part of that misconception which she, like all other would-be reformers, had to endure. In the most important period of her early life she wrote, As to Goethe . . . I do not go to him as a guide or friend, but as a great thinker who makes me think. Ms. letter: Providence, R. I., July 3, 1837. At this very time she was planning to write Goethe's biography and preparing to translate Eckermann's conversations with him. In her correspondence, here and there, she doubtless speaks of him as the master, but the light use of a trivial phrase is not to be set against her distinct disclaimer, as just quoted. She was indeed too omnivorous a reader, too ardent and fertile a thinker, to go through the successive bondages by which many fine minds — especially the minds of

Chapter 19: personal traits. That woman of genius, Mrs. Sarah Helen Whitman of Providence,--best known to the world as having been the betrothed of Edgar Poe, -wrote once, in the Providence journal, a description of a scene where the brilliant and audacious John Neal gave a parlor lecture on Phrenology, then at its high-tide of prominence; and illustrated it by Margaret Fuller's head. The occasion is thus described:-- Among the topics of the evening, phrenology was introduced, and Mranning, to live than to think? Ms. Here it is that she sometimes chafes under the guidance of Emerson; always longs to work as well as meditate, to deal with the many, not the few, to feel herself in action. This made it the best thing in her Providence life to have attended the Whig caucus, and made her think, on board the French war-vessel, that she would like to command it; this made her delight in studying Western character; this led her to New York, where the matter — of-fact influence o
