Cambridge History of American Literature: volume 2 (ed. Trent, William Peterfield, 1862-1939., Erskine, John, 1879-1951., Sherman, Stuart Pratt, 1881-1926., Van Doren, Carl, 1885-1950.), Chapter 18: Prescott and Motley (search)
to his pages. At the same time, this use of fragments has not been due to the unpopular character of the full work, as is proved by the continued sales of the three volumes. As a compensation for the Saturday's strictures on his work, The Westminster review for the month following (April, 1856), had as its leading article a comprehensive paper by J. A. Froude which did full justice to the unknown American writer. A history as complete as industry and genius can make it now lies before ury though it did not find the style satisfactory. Perhaps the most severe stricture was that the figurative language was uncultivated in tone, but the general attitude of the censor is quite different from that taken four years previous. The Westminster review was more lavish in its praise. The Edinburgh review was a trifle patronizing, but still Motley was given credit. The American reviews had no reservations in their praise of both works. It is a trifle amusing to note the conclusion

ouri Compromise, prohibiting slavery north of 36° 30′. Scott and his wife were sold to a common owner, and returned voluntarily—or at least without resistance—to Missouri, where the husband brought suit for their freedom. The State court denied the suit, in default of evidence that their owners meant to manumit them by taking them on to free soil. Appeal was then made to the Federal Supreme Court, a body of nine members, of whom five were Lib. 27.62. slaveholders. The article in the Westminster [for July, 1857, by Harriet Lib. 27.173, 177, 181. Martineau, on the Manifest Destiny of the American Union], wrote Mrs. M. W. Chapman to Mr. Garrison, was, Ms. Oct. 24 (?), 1857. I find by comparison of dates, written at a time when no two papers in the United States agreed as to what the Dred Scott decision did mean—all the A. S. papers agreeing that if it meant anything, it meant the extension of slavery throughout the States. . . . I should really like to read the decision,

y, amid the cultivated circles of Boston, dared also to appeal. Only two years before (1831) Garrison had begun the Liberator, and only two years later (1835) he was destined to be dragged through Boston streeets, with a rope round his neck, by gentlemen of property and standing, as the newspapers said next day. It was just at the most dangerous moment of the rising storm that Mrs. Child appealed. Miss Martineau in her article, The martyr age in America, --published in the London and Westminster review in 1839, and at once reprinted in America,--gives by far the most graphic picture yet drawn of that perilous time. She describes Mrs. Child as a lady of whom society was exceedingly proud before she published her Appeal, and to whom society has been extremely contemptuous ever since. She adds: Her works were bought with avidity before, but fell into sudden oblivion as soon as she had done a greater deed than writing any of them. It is evident that this result was not unexpecte

o Doctors' Commons, I breakfasted with a friend of the common-law bar, Mr. White, William Frederick White, with whom Sumner breakfasted June 5. in King's Bench Walk, Temple, and found in his library your Conflict of Laws. All the courts of Westminster I have seen. Mr. Justice Vaughan was kind enough to quit the bench during a hearing, and speak with me. He has treated me with the greatest distinction.

He is the author of a book on The Colonies of England, and a History of the Whig Ministry of 1830, and has contributed to the Edinburgh as well as the Westminster Review. Allying himself in later life with the cause of American Slavery in its final struggle, he became intensely hostile to the United States during the Civil War, and was the partisan of the Southern Confederacy.

This morning, in the rain, drove through the park with Mr. Gladstone; then at eleven o'clock left the castle; at noon reached Chester, where I drove about the town, visited the old cathedral, walked on the old town walls, and then drove to Eaton Hall, the magnificent seat of the Marquis of Westminster, in pursuance of a kind invitation which I had received from the Marchioness. Arrived there before lunch; the Marchioness showed me through the house and took me to my room most hospitably; notwithstanding rain, visited the gardens and stables; at dinner were Sir Edward Cust, master of ceremonies at the palace, Mr. Antrobus of the English legation at Washington in 1816-1819, Mr. Parker John H.

There is more teaching and more learning in our American Cambridge than there is in both the English Universities together, thoa between them they have four times Our number of Students. The misfortune for us is that our subjects are not so hopeful. We are obliged to do at Cambridge [U. S.] that which is done at Eton and Westminster, at Winchester, Rugby, and Harrow, as well as at Oxford and Cambridge. Boys may go to Eton at 6, and do go often at 8, 10, and of Necessity before 12.
