odoxy.... Of that which is not clear one cannot have a clear idea. My reading in Fichte to-day is of the most confused. February 7. Chev came dancing in to tell me that Flossy is engaged to David Hall. His delight knew no bounds. I am also pleased, for David is of excellent character and excellent blood, the Halls being firstrate people and with no family infirmity (insanity or blindness). My only regret is that it must prove a long engagement, David being a very young lawyer. February 14. All's up, as I feared, with Northern Lights in its present form. Gilmour proposes to go to New York and to change its form and character to that of a weekly newspaper. I of course retire from it and, indeed, despite my title of editor, have been only a reader of manuscripts and contributor — nothing more. I have not had power of any sort to make engagements.

Sent off my prize poem with scarcely any hope of its obtaining or indeed deserving the prize, but Mar An editor. has promised to pay me something for it in any case, and I was bound to try for the object, namely, a good civic poem . . February 15.... A day of great pleasure, profit and fatigue ... Griggs's lecture.... The address on Erasmus and Luther was very inspiring.

d him: Robert, what is religion? He replied, To love God with all one's heart, Christ helping us. He began his prayer last Sunday thus: Our Father who art in heaven, on earth, and in hell! On April 13, she was out for the first time since February 14, when I returned sick from Baltimore ... . Another week and she was at her church, for the first time since January 18. It had been a long and weary time, yet one remembers not so much the suffering and confinement as the gayety of it. T — the theme attracts me much. If I give it, I will have Whittier's hymn sung: Oh! sometimes gleams upon our sight-- Wrote to thank Higginson for sending me word that I am the first woman member of the society of American Authors..... February 14. Luncheon at 3 Joy Street. .My seat was between T. W. H. and President Eliot, with whom I had not spoken in many years. He spoke to me at once and we shook hands and conversed very cordially. I had known his father quite well — a lover of m
