Emera m hlmaelf must have dellghted to flnd hla
friend tracing them all ao far as thej had any
relatlon to phyalcal Influence*, to "the underlvi I
aweetiteea of the i pe:i fJoncord sky and the apa

CnrUa repreaenta, uq_doubt. what may prove

The ieisureliness. the dlgnlty. the markel and

Wendell Holmea Ln UM, the atyle haa galned In
rapldlty and in conclalon while loalng nothlng
of Us grace. He l.-av.-s oul a good deel which
earlier he put ln. and .very exclalon adda force
to his expreealon. what a knowledge of Amer?
lean llterature there is in thla eaeay. and what
ea?e of nlluaton to people and facta already more
than half forgotten. Ou.tls grew up whlle they
were atlll fresh. and he has refreahed his mem
orv. if need were. at ihe fuii.st fountaln.
TurnlnK over the noWe volumea of Btedman
and Miss Hutchlnaon In whlch, aa on a vael
ptaln the wh.de llne of American llterature la

That is B tine tribute to the monumcntal I.ibrary
of Amerlean Ltterature of which Mr. stedman
and Miss Hutchlnaon were the edltora; an ln
valnaMe work whlch but for them mlghl hav.
walted long lo ?et itseif done, nm ever have
been done eCJBBlly well. "There are Ungere of B

they are of a day" lt is true, and true alao of
Wtitera who are not sinRers. and both have found
an honorable resting place in this capadoua
Critkism in these days glvea Itaelf the same airs.
and ln its mimicry of acJentlflc methoda forgeU
sometlmes Its klnshlp to llterature. Curtis rnipht
l.e a gOOd adviser for criUca of this j.attern.
To hls elorjuence or Insitfht not many of them
.an pretend. but a; leaal th-y nre buman as be
ls human. and th-y cannot but feel the touchea
of nature and of human nature whlch abound in
hlB pases. I cjtiute but one con.-iuding pas-.itfe
from the essay on Holmc.:
The kindlv .Master take. the reader by the
hutton or laya his hand upon his Bhoulder. nm
with the rude famtllarity of the bully or tba hoot
but wlth the courteay of Montalgne. the friend
liness of John Aubr.-y. or the wis.- cheer of Sel
den The reader glows with the pleasure ot an
Indlvldual greetlng, and a wlde dloceae ot thoae
whom the Autocrat n-v-r s.w plume then -
nroudly upon hls peraonal acqualntan ??-. ....
y.,r juat sixtv years alnce hla Brat gay and ten
der note was heard, Holmea haa been fu.rll.ing

patrtarch of our llterature, and all his country

The essay on Blr Phlllp Bldney la, perbapa,
even ncre aotoMographli al than that on Bm
erson. Sidney was a here after Curtla'a own
beart. What he has Wlltten of the Klizab.-than
MiKht la among the moal eaquialte of his
achlevementa as mere llterature. and ..ne of the
best studies of one <>f the most benutlful human

whether It could be publtahed. It was written ln
U57. lt appear* for the flrst time in thla VOlume.
If there wer. nothlng elaa in it. the lover of the
beautlful and ol the herolc would enabrine tbe
bOOh among hls tr-asurcs. The llfe of Sir Phlllp
Bldney ls here, the roman'- of his lettera to Ells
abeth dissuadlng her from the marriage with
the Duke of Anjou; the Defence of Poeay, the
fatal sklrmish at Zutph.-n.
Thla is the story of I'hilip Bldney. A letter, a
li.j.k. a battle. li..w llttle to Juatlfy h;s unlque

And waa that why Curtis thouKht lt dll
