we find also the record of Julia's parting injunction to her husband: Be kind to the little blind children, for they are papa's children. These parting words, our mother adds, are inscribed on the wall of the Kindergarten for the Blind at Jamaica Plain. Beautiful in life, and most beautiful in death, her sainted memory has a glory beyond that of worldly fame. She considered Julia the most gifted of her children. The Reminiscences speak of her at some length, making mention of her beneft everybody cannot hear Phillips Brooks. I also thought: They can all hear the lesson of heavenly truth in the great Church of All Souls and of All Saints; there is room enough and to spare. She writes a poem for the Blind Kindergarten at Jamaica Plain. I worked at my poem until the last moment and even changed it from the manuscript as I recited it. The occasion was most interesting. Sam Eliot presided, and made a fine opening address, in which he spoke beautifully of dear Julia and h

ds to him and presently proposed to speak to the prisoners, to which the jailer gladly assented. I began by saying, I feel to speak to you, my brothers. Said that all of us make mistakes and many of us do wrong at times. Exhorted them to give, in future, obedience to the laws upon which the existence of society depends. The convict Montrose sent to me a little chain and ornaments of his own making. I promised to send one or two books for the library. .. So, through bowery and breezy Nebraska; such a relief to eyes and nerves! to Chicago, where Maud kept and comforted her as long as might be, and sent her refreshed on her way; finally to Boston, where she arrived half-starved, and so to Newport. To Maud July 8, 1888. Grumble, grumble — tumble, tumble, For something to eat, Fast-y fast-y nasty, nasty, At last, at last-y, Ma's dead beat! Oh! the dust of it, and the swirl, in which the black porter and the white babies all seemed mixed up together. A few dried and withe

was to preach this sermon before the Parker Fraternity. It was one of those best liked by herself and others. The great event of this year was her visit to California. She had never seen the Pacific Coast; the Elliotts were going to Chicago for an indefinite stay; her sister Annie, whom she had not seen in many years, beggede mountains. Here she found her beloved sister Annie, the little Hitter of her early letters; here she spent happy days, warm with outer and inner sunshine. California was a-tiptoe with eagerness to see and hear the author of the Battle Hymn ; many lectures were planned, in San Francisco and elsewhere. The Journal gives but brief glimpses of this California visit, which she always recalled with delight as one of the best of all her great good times. In the newspaper clippings, preserved in a scrapbook, we find the adjectives piled mountain high in praise and appreciation. Though not yet seventy, she was already, in the eye of the youthful reporter,

very brave, but I know that she felt it as I did .... To Maud Merchants' Hotel, St. Paul, Minnesota, April 10. So far, so good, my dear sweet child. I got me off as well as possible, though we had many complications and delays as to the ticket. My section was very comfortable. I had supper in the dining-car, and slept well, no theatre-troupe nor D. T. being aboard. I have now got my ticket all straight to 'Frisco, and won't I frisk oh when I get there! The next stop was at Spokane Falls. Here she had a bronchial attack; very hoarse and sore in my throat and chest. Went over my lecture carefully, leaving out some pages. Felt absolute need of tea-stimulant, and went downtown, finding some in a grocer's shop. The good servant Dora made me a hot cup which refreshed me greatly. Very hoarse at my lecture. Opera House a good one enough; for a desk, a box mounted on a barrel, all covered with a colored paper; decent enough. Lecture: Polite Society ; well received. The S

Have written to Mary Graves: I am at last getting to stand where I can have some spiritual outlook. The confusion of is not is giving place to the steadfastness of is. Have embodied my thoughts in a poem to my dear Julia and in some pages which I may read at the meeting intended to commemorate her by the New England Woman's Club. The Journal of this spring is full of tender allusions to the beloved daughter. The dreams of night often brought back the gracious figure; these visions are accurately described, each detail dwelt on with loving care. In the Reminiscences she tells of Julia's consecrated life, of her devotion to her father, and to the blind pupils; describes, too, her pleasure in speaking at the Concord School of Philosophy (where her mind seemed to have found its true level ) and in
Tumwater (Washington, United States) (search for this): chapter 22
er. A queer old bachelor on board, hearing me say that I should like to live in Washington Territory, said he would give me a handsome house and lot if I would live in Olympia, at which several Olympians present laughed. She left Olympia by train, en route for Portland. The conductor, Brown by name, saw the name on her valise, and claimed acquaintance, remembering her when she lived in Boylston Place. Soon after, passing a lovely little mill-stream, with a few houses near it, by name Tumwater, she consulted him as to the value of land there, with the result that she bought several acres of good bottom land. This was one of several small purchases of land made during her various journeyings. She always hoped that they would bring about large results: the Tumwater property was specially valued by her, though she never set foot in the place. The pioneer was strong in her, as it was in the Doctor; the romance of travel never failed to thrill her. Speeding hither and thither by

wrote to Mrs. Cheney, who had lost her only daughter: This combat of the soul with deadly sorrow is a single-handed one, so far as human help is concerned. I do believe that God's sweet angels are with us when we contend against the extreme of calamity. Heavy as this affliction was, it brought none of the paralysis of grief caused by Sammy's death: rather, as after the passing of the Chevalier, she was urged by the thought of her dead child to more and higher efforts. In the quiet of Oak Glen she wrote this summer a careful study of Dante and Beatrice, for the Concord School of Philosophy. This was a summer school of ten years (1879-88) in which Emerson, Alcott, and W. T. Harris took part. July 20 found her at Concord, where she and Julia had been wont to go together.

raw matting and waxed it. About thirty came. We had some sweet music, singers with good voices, and among others a pupil of Perabo, who was really interesting and remarkable. At one of the hospitable cities, a gentleman asked her to drive with him, drove her about for a couple of hours, descanting upon the beauties of the place, and afterwards proclaimed that Mrs. Howe was the most agreeable woman he had ever met. And I never once opened my lips! she said. On June 10 she preached in Oakland: the one sermon which I have felt like preaching in these parts: Thou art Peter, and upon this rock. The house was well filled.... After service as I leaned over to speak to those who stopped to greet me, I saw one of our old church-members, who told me, with eyes full of tears, that our dear James Freeman Clarke is no more. This was like an ice-bolt; I could not realize it at first. A very tender history Did in your passing fall. Years of sweet converse, of following and d

res, I remember those dreadful battles. It was a question with us women, Will our men prevail? Until they do they will not come home. How we blessed them when they did; how we blessed them with our prayers when they were in the battlefield. Those were times of sorrow; this is one of joy. Let us thank God, who has given us these victories. The audience rose en masse, and stood while the Battle Hymn was sung, author and audience joining in the chorus. After her second lecture in Santa Barbara, she sauntered a little, and spent a little money. Bought some imperfect pearls which will look'well when set. Wanted a handsome brooch which I saw; thought I had best conquer my desire, and did so. At Ventura: Got so tired that I could hardly dress for lecture. The next day she proposed to Mrs. S. at dinner (1 P. M.) to invite some young people for the evening, promising to play for them to dance. She [Mrs. S.] ordered a buggy and drove about the village. Her son stretched a burl
