y men in Coventry, have vanished. If they survive in a few names, they exercise no perceptible influence on the course of events. It is difficult, with the transformation which has come from devastating fires, from new or widened streets, and the conversion, in whole districts, of dwellings into warehouses, to find old landmarks; but it is harder still to find traces of that society which had cast out Wendell Phillips, well blooded as the best, and which now laid its heavy hand on Sumner, Palfrey, and Dana. George Ticknor's house, at the corner of Park and Beacon streets, facing the English elms on the Common, was the centre of the literary society of the time. He began to live in this house in 1829. A picture of the library is given in the Memorial History of Boston, vol. III. p. 662, and in Life of Ticknor, vol. i. p. 388. As to visitors at the house, see Life of Ticknor, vol. i. p. 391; vol.

science. Prescott's heart seems to shrink before his vast stores of materials illustrating Philip II. With his waning sight, he fears that he cannot accomplish the work, and he has thought of executing some fraction only,—as for instance, the siege of Malta, the expedition of Don Sebastian, or the Dutch war. If he takes a part only, I have exhorted him to present a view of the origin and establishment of Dutch independence. This would be an important theme with a proper unity. To J. G. Palfrey, February 22:— Let me recommend to you to procure a book, The past, the present, and the future, by H. C. Carey, a work of political economy and speculation. It makes for peace strongly, showing the true policy of peace. Though the writer is a free-trader, he is obliged to admit what he calls self-defensive tariffs; but argues finally for direct taxes. This is towards the close of the book. I think you will find much in it that will help some of your present trains of thought.

Those who have come to manly life since 1852 cannot without it comprehend the profound indignation which
