Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, Chapter 2: Hereditary traits. (search)
in my own mind it is clear and gave the key to her life. Let us go back to her ancestry and trace this fine thread of New England vigor — which was a Roman vigor, touched by Christianity — running through it all. Thomas Fuller, entitled Lieutena England to America in 1638, and left this record of his spiritual experiences. In thirty-eight I set my foot On this New England shore; My thoughts were then to stay one year, And here remain no more. But, by the preaching of God's word By famouss also a certain exceptional flavor arising from the fact that, unlike nine tenths of those who made such addresses in New England, the speaker was a Republican--or, as men were beginning to say, a Democrat--and not a Federalist. He does not appearom this was written was no feudal lady, flower-like and delicate like Browning's Duchess; but a faithful and laborious New England matron, able and willing to perform for her large household the humblest services, we can see the value of this tribut

let a dollar be spent upon her schooling. The elder sister insisted that she should be sent to a suitable school, offering, if necessary, to sacrifice her own share of the family income, or even of the estate itself, for this purpose. Every New England farm-house has been the scene of some touching tale of sisterly devotion, but nowhere more genuine than in that old homestead at Groton. And, with other hopes, the dream of Europe must go. Her family begged her to take in advance her share alth. She not only had the courage to do this, but the courage to let it be known by those for whom it was done, when it was best that they should know it. Feminine self-sacrifice is a very common fruit on every soil, and certainly on that of New England; but it often spoils its object by leading to selfishness and then dying unrevealed, -all from a mistaken sense of duty. To make this devotion, by revealing it, a means of elevating the person for whom it is made,--this is a far rarer thing,

Yet, Heaven be praised, though sometimes forgetful of them in absence, I make it up in presence, so far that I think I do not give pain, as I pass along this world. Ms. Diary. Other rye-bread days were spent in writing letters of counsel to her younger brothers, who were, during a portion of this time, away at school. There is the whole range of a New England elder-sister's life in the two following extracts from the same letter to Richard Fuller (May 12, 1842). First, the love of Greek, perhaps flagging, must be stimulated:-- While here I have been reading (only in translation, alas!) the Cyropedia, and other works of Xenophon, and some dramas of Euripides; and, were envy ever worth our while, I should deeply envy those who can with convenience gain access to the Greek mind in its proper garb. No possession can be more precious than a kno

as preserved for us so good a picture of the working of the new impulse among educated minds, at that day; but the most remarkable passage was that in which the young student announced the possibilities of American Literature, as follows:-- When Horace was affecting to make himself a Greek poet, the genius of his country, the shade of immortal Romulus, stood over him, post mediam noctem visus quum somnia vera, and forbade the perversion. .. Is everything so sterile and pigmy here in New England, that we must all, writers and readers, be forever replenishing ourselves with the mighty wonders of the Old World? Is not the history of this people transcendent in the chronicles of the world for pure, homogeneous sublimity and beauty and richness? Go down some ages of ages from this day, compress the years from the landing of the Pilgrims to the death of Washington into the same span as the first two centuries of Athens now fill our memories. Will men then come hither from all regio

nd them, I pray, forthwith. These were humorous poems, in which Mr. Greene was prolific, though only one of this class of his productions, Old Grimes, has survived to posterity. They would have been oddly out of place in the Dial, had they arrived. In her first two years of editorship she brought into prominence a series of writers each of whom had his one statement to make, and, having made it, discreetly retired. Such were the Rev. W. D. Wilson, who wrote The Unitarian movement in New England; the Rev. Thomas T. Stone, who wrote Man in the ages; Mrs. Ripley, the gifted wife of the Rev. George Ripley, who wrote on ( Woman; Professor John M. Mackie, now of Providence, R. I., who wrote of Shelley ; Dr. Francis Tuckerman, who wrote Music of the winter; John A. Saxton, father of the well-known military governor of South Carolina, who wrote Prophecy — Transcendentalism — progress; the Rev. W. B.

emained as pleasant, had one half the projects of the period become fulfilled. The eighty-two pestilent heresies that were already reckoned up in Massachusetts before 1638, or the generation of odd names and natures which the Earl of Strafford found among the English Roundheads, could hardly surpass those of which Boston was the centre during the interval between the year 1835 and the absorbing political upheaval of 1848. The best single picture of the period is in Emerson's lecture on New England reformers, delivered in March, 1844; but it tells only a part of the story, for one very-marked trait of the period was that the agitation reached all circles. German theology, as interpreted by Brownson, Parker, and Ripley, influenced the more educated class, and the Second Advent excitement equally prepared the way among the more ignorant. The anti-slavery movement was the profoundest moral element, on the whole, but a multitude of special enterprises also played their parts. People
