Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Letters and Journals of Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Chapter 2: the Worcester period (search)
, 1859 I got home from Pennsylvania on Friday morning. Whittier was in the same region a month before me and he said, Godul and gay, but inwardly sad, under that bright surface. Whittier is the simplest and truest of men, beautiful at home, butere we encountered dear, dark, slender, simple, sensitive Whittier, trying to decide whether to drink delight of battle withinted; each visibly wished to run away from the other; to Whittier a woman is a woman, and he was as bashful before the smalple, Edmund Quincy, Professor Stowe, Stillman the artist, Whittier (after all), Woodman, John Wyman, and Underwood. When dio place me there, which he did. On Dr. Holmes's left was Whittier, next, Professor Stowe, opposite me, while Mrs. S. was onrod, perch, or pole ), but I suppose that will be liked. Whittier's poem is daring, but successful; Agassiz has covered then I went. White dress and cape bonnet; face between Elizabeth Whittier and Susan Higginson: looking older than I expected.

all over the lonely hill-top, and five children with cows and tin kettles and the baby in a wagon — in the waning June sunset; five little sisters there were, with all bleached but their blue eyes. Worcester, June, 1862 Mrs. Howell, of Philadelphia, a most attractive woman whom I met last year, is there [Princeton] already. She wrote Milton's verses on his blindness which were included in a London edition of his works, and there is a mild, chronic, Quakerly flirtation between her and Whittier, who wrote in the April Atlantic a charming poem about a ride with her at Princeton last year. She is a fine-looking woman of forty-five, but the hotel scandal of last year was that she wears what are called plumpers in her cheeks to preserve the roundness of early years, and though I hold this a libel, still the overwhelming majority of last year's Princetonians believe it. Miss Betsey Sturgis, that arbiter of fashion, says plumpers are very common in Philadelphia and she does n't doubt M

mericanism in literature, it is the democratic society of the future which, by subordinating the conventional and the individual, is really to afford more material and a far higher style of contrast. I am almost indignant when you speak of the barren sentiment of a plain New England life --plain if you please, but not necessarily barren. Emerson and Hawthorne certainly did not find it practically barren, though the latter in one moment of degeneracy made a similar remark. The strength of Whittier has been in finding all needed elements of poetry at home. In answer to this letter of criticism, Stedman replied that he was speaking only of his personal experience in youth; that it was not the sentiment of Newport or Boston, but of a Calvinistic back-country, where he was injured for life and almost perished of repression and atrophy. January 9, 1888 Do pay proper attention to William Austin, of whom Duyckinck has some account. I think his Peter Rugg had marked influence on Ha
