To Mrs. S. B. Shaw. Melrose, October, 1874. I have just received your loving letter of the 26th, which was forwarded to me here. I have a longing to get to you, but I have many misgivings about going to New York. I was wonderfully calm at the time, The death of Mr. Child. and for twenty-four hours afterward, but since then I seem to get more and more sensitive and distressed. I try hard to overcome it, for I do not want to cast a shadow over others. Moreover, I feel that such states of mind are wrong. There are so many reasons for thankfulness to the Heavenly Father And I do feel very thankful that he did not suffer for a very long time; that the powers of his mind were undimmed to the last; that my strength and faculties were preserved to take care of him to the last; and that the heavy burden of loneliness has fallen upon me, rather than upon him. But at times it seems as if I could no longer bear the load. I keep breaking down. They told me I should feel better

esence of that beautiful spectacle, but quite the contrary? He wrote to Bernard Barton:-- I was surprised into confessing what I might have as well kept to myself, that I had been guilty of sending persons a bat-hunting to see the ruins of Melrose by moonlight, which I never saw myself. The fact is rather curious, for as I have often slept nights at Melrose (when I did not reside so near the place), it is singular that I have not seen it by moonlight on some chance occasion. However, itMelrose (when I did not reside so near the place), it is singular that I have not seen it by moonlight on some chance occasion. However, it so happens that I never did, and must (unless I get cold on purpose) be contented with supposing that these ruins look very like other Gothic buildings which I have seen by the wan light of the moon. Letters and poems of Bernard Barton, by his daughter, p. 147. This was carried so far by Whittier that during all his visits to the White Mountains, he never could be tempted to go to Quebec, but said, I know all about it, by books and pictures, as if I had seen it. Yet how much he enjoyed th

is so near your heart. Since I have been here I have haunted every path and point of observation from which the falls can be seen; I have descended staircases, clambered over rocks, hugged along narrow and precipitous paths, crossed bending bridges, scaled elevated acclivities, penetrated caverns, and finally drenched myself utterly in venturing under the falling sheet of waters. I have seen the cataract in broad sunlight, and again by beautiful moonlight: If thou wouldst view fair Melrose aright, Go visit it by the pale moonlight; and so I would have an observer look upon Niagara. The bow of Heaven seems almost perpetually to rest on its face, spanning its white foam and emerald green. It is not withdrawn now, even for the night, for the full orb of the moon creates a most beautiful arc, seen a little less distinctly than that of the sun, but full and marked by all the prismatic colors. I have sat for an hour contemplating this delightful object, with the cataract soundin

e enjoyed greatly some hours with Wordsworth, at Rydal Mount; but missed Southey, then absent on the Continent. From Keswick he went to Penrith, where he was for a day with Sir George Back, the Arctic voyager. Passing into Scotland, he was at Melrose the guest of Sir David Brewster. Here he conversed with companions of Sir Walter Scott, and made an excursion to Abbotsford. He was in Edinburgh nine days, meeting some of its most famous men; dining with Sir William Hamilton and Sir John Robi conceived a strong affection for him, met him at the Judges' dinner at Liverpool. Sydney Smith commended him to Baron Alderson; the baron introduced him to the Bishop of Durham; and at the bishop's he met Sir David Brewster, who invited him to Melrose. To Hillard he wrote, Dec. 4, 1838:— The acquaintance which I have made, various and extensive, has been volunteered to me. It has grown out of casual meetings in society, and has been extended in a spirit of kindness and hospitality whic

1, when the society extended a call to the late Rev. Charles H. Eaton to become its pastor. Mr. Eaton was then settled in Palmer, Mass. He, however, declined the invitation; possibly he had at this time a similar proposition under consideration from the Church of the Divine Paternity in New York, for in a very short time it was announced that he had accepted a call there. Subsequently, by a unanimous vote, the society manifested its right good sense by calling Rev. Charles A. Skinner, of Melrose. For ten years, as you know, he was pastor here, beloved by all, during his pastorate, and still beloved by us all because of his fatherly interest in the parish, his upright life and Christian graces. We take great pleasure in greeting him here to-night, and sincerely hope he may be spared yet many years to favor us with his gracious presence upon every important or anniversary occasion. At the time of Mr. Skinner's coming, we can judge somewhat of the strength of the parish by presen
hool and theological training which his minister-father had given him, and emerged ready to preach. His first charge was at Dexter, in Brownville, his native place, as has been said. He worked there several years, and found there his wife, Cornelia Bartholomew, whom he married in 1850. For fifteen years he was pastor of the First Universalist Church of Cambridge. In 1867 he accepted a call to Hartford, Conn., where he preached ten years. Later, for four years, he occupied a pulpit in Melrose, from which he came to Somerville. During his ten years service in this city he was recognized as one of the ablest clergymen of Somerville. His retirement from this pulpit, his last charge, was a matter of regret. He still retains the affection of a host of friends in this city, and is frequently called upon to act in his ministerial capacity at occasions of prominence. Rev. Mr. Skinner resides in Cambridge, and in June, 1903, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his first service

ton; of the martyrdom of feeling endured by friends of the slave — of Parker's heroic house and pulpit. It seemed, as it often does, great to have known these things, little to have done so little in consequence. November 27. Finished my lecture on Woman in the Greek Drama. It was high time, as my head and eyes are tired with the persistent strain.... All the past week has been hard work. No pleasure reading except a very little in the evening. December 1. . . . Took 2.30 train for Melrose .... I read my new lecture--Woman as shown by the Greek Dramatists: of whom I quoted from Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Aristophanes. A Club Tea followed: a pleasant one. I asked the mothers present whether they educated their daughters in hygiene and housekeeping. The response was not enthusiastic, and people were more disposed to talk of the outer world, careers of women, business or profession, than to speak of the home business. One young girl, however, told us that she was a housekeepi
