Charles E. Stowe, Harriet Beecher Stowe compiled from her letters and journals by her son Charles Edward Stowe, Chapter 5: poverty and sickness, 1840-1850. (search)
o me but a comfort. He has been my pride and joy. Many a heartache has he cured for me. Many an anxious night have I held him to my bosom and felt the sorrow and loneliness pass out of me with the touch of his little warm hands. Yet I have just seen him in his death agony, looked on his imploring face when I could not help nor soothe nor do one thing, not one, to mitigate his cruel suffering, do nothing but pray in my anguish that he might die soon. I write as though there were no sorrow like my sorrow, yet there has been in this city, as in the land of Egypt, scarce a house without its dead. This heart-break, this anguish, has been everywhere, and when it will end God alone knows. With this severest blow of all, the long years of trial and suffering in the West practically end; for in September, 1849, Professor Stowe returned from Brattleboroa, and at the same time received a call to the Collins Professorship at Bowdoin College, in Brunswick, Maine, that he decided to accept.

My traveling expenses, when I get to Brunswick, including everything, will have been seventnly discipline. On the eve of sailing for Brunswick, Mrs. Stowe writes to Mrs. Sykes (Miss May):n .... The events of the first summer in Brunswick are graphically described by Mrs. Stowe in aurniture and equipments; and then landing in Brunswick in the midst of a drizzly, inexorable northeollowed in its pilgrimage from Cincinnati to Brunswick.

onounce it true. Truly thy friend, John G. Whittier. From Thomas Wentworth Higginson came the following:-- To have written at once the most powerful of contemporary fiction and the most efficient of anti-slavery tracts is a double triumph in literature and philanthropy, to which this country has heretofore seen no parallel. Yours respectfully and gratefully, T. W. Higginson. A few days after the publication of the book, Mrs. Stowe, writing from Boston to her husband in Brunswick, says: I have been in such a whirl ever since I have been here. I found business prosperous. Jewett animated. He has been to Washington and conversed with all the leading senators, Northern and Southern. Seward told him it was the greatest book of the times, or something of that sort, and he and Sumner went around with him to recommend it to Southern men and get them to read it. It is true that with these congratulatory and commendatory letters came hosts of others, threateni
erature in the Theological Seminary at Andover, Mass. In regard to leaving Brunswick and her many friends there, Mrs. Stowe wrote: For my part, if I must leave Brunswick, I would rather leave at once. I can tear away with a sudden pull more easily than to linger there knowing that I am to leave at last. I shall never find people whom I shall like better than those of Brunswick. As Professor Stowe's engagements necessitated his spending much of the summer in Brunswick, and alBrunswick, and also making a journey to Cincinnati, it devolved upon his wife to remain in Andover, and superintend the preparation of the house they were to occupy. This was known nd. What a beautiful place it is! There is everything here that there is at Brunswick except the sea,--a great exception. Yesterday I was out all the forenoon skeintended? Ah, welladay! At last the house was finished, the removal from Brunswick effected, and the reunited family was comfortably settled in its Andover hom
o their homes. Our old friends there are among the past. They have gone on over the river. I send you a bit of poetry that pleases me. The love of the old for each other has its poetry. It is something sacred and full of riches. I long to be with you, and to have some more of our good long talks. The scenery along this river is very fine. The oaks still keep their leaves, though the other trees are bare; but oaks and pines make a pleasant contrast. We shall stop twenty minutes at Brunswick, so I shall get a glimpse of the old place. Now we are passing through Hallowell, and the Kennebec changes sides. What a beautiful river! It is now full of logs and rafts. Well, I must bring this to a close. Good-by, dear, with unchanging love. Ever your wife. From South Framingham, Mass., she writes on November 7th:-- Well, my dear, here I am in E.'s pretty little house. He has a pretty wife, a pretty sister, a pretty baby, two nice little boys, and a lovely white cat. T
