Charles E. Stowe, Harriet Beecher Stowe compiled from her letters and journals by her son Charles Edward Stowe, Chapter 6: removal to Brunswick, 1850-1852. (search)
brated compromise measures in the winter of 1850. To conciliate the North, California was to be admitted as a free State. To pacify the slaveholders of the South, more stringent laws were to be enacted concerning persons bound to service in one State and escaping into another. The 7th of March, 1850, Daniel Webster made his celebrated speech, in which he defended this compromise, and the abolitionists of the North were filled with indignation, which found its most fitting expression in Whittier's Ichabod: So fallen, so lost, the glory from his gray hairs gone. . . . When honor dies the man is dead. It was in the midst of this excitement that Mrs. Stowe, with her children and her modest hopes for the future, arrived at the house of her brother, Dr. Edward Beecher. Dr. Beecher had been the intimate friend and supporter of Lovejoy, who had been murdered by the slaveholders at Alton for publishing an anti-slavery paper. His soul was stirred to its very depths by the iniquitous
erary merit and importance. On its title-page, with the name of Dr. Gamaliel Bailey as editor, appeared that of John Greenleaf Whittier as corresponding editor. In its columns Mrs. Southworth made her first literary venture, while Alice and Phoebet. With great regard, and friendly remembrance to Mr. Stowe, I remain, Yours most truly, Henry W. Longfellow. Whittier wrote to Garrison:-- What a glorious work Harriet Beecher Stowe has wrought. Thanks for the Fugitive Slave Law! writing by the abuse it brings. Now all the defenders of slavery have let me alone and are abusing you. To Mrs. Stowe, Whittier wrote:-- Ten thousand thanks for thy immortal book. My young friend Mary Irving (of the Era ) writes me that she hleans, and amid the scenes described in it, and that they, with one accord, pronounce it true. Truly thy friend, John G. Whittier. From Thomas Wentworth Higginson came the following:-- To have written at once the most powerful of contem

Immediately afterpart of The minister's Wooing under a great pressure of mental excitement, and it was a relief to her to turn to the quiet story of the coast of Maine, which she loved so well. In February, 1874, Mrs. Stowe received the following words from Mr. Whittier, which are very interesting in this connection: When I am in the mood for thinking deeply I read The Minister's Wooing. But The Pearl of Orr's Island is my favorite. It is the most charming New England idyl ever written. The minis
ng that Mrs. Stowe should have felt herself impelled to give literary form to an experience so exceptional. Still more must this be the case when the early associations of this exceptional character were as amusing and interesting as they are shown forth in Oldtown Fireside stories. None of the incidents or characters embodied in those sketches are ideal. The stories are told as they came from Mr. Stowe's lips, with little or no alteration. Sam Lawson was a real character. In 1874 Mr. Whittier wrote to Mrs. Stowe: I am not able to write or study much, or read books that require thought, without suffering, but I have Sam Lawson lying at hand, and, as Corporal Trim said of Yorick's sermon, I like it hugely. The power and literary value of these stories lie in the fact that they are true to nature. Professor Stowe was himself an inimitable mimic and story-teller. No small proportion of Mrs. Stowe's success as a literary woman is to be attributed to him. Not only was he

Besides the annual journeys to and from Florida, and her many interests in the South, Mrs. Stowe's time between 1870 and 1880 was largely occupied by literary and kindred labors. In the autumn of 1871 we find he is not like my mother, but in mind I presume she is most like her. I thank you for my father's sake and for my mother's sake for the courtesy, the friendliness, and the kindness which you give to Mrs. Stowe. The following poem from John Greenleaf Whittier was then read: Thrice welcome from the Land of Flowers And golden-fruited orange bowers To this sweet, green-turfed June of ours! To her who, in our evil time, Dragged into light the nation's crime With strength beyond the strength of me
