has always taken a more practical turn.
Yet no man is more truly entitled to that distinction than William Blake. To the ordinary
man he is not only visionary but incomprehensible. He is too spiritual an artist and too
mystical a poet to be readily understood. One
needs almost to be born with a strong mystical
instinct to sympathise with, or even understand,
such a character.

His life covers the latter half of the eighteenth—or what Carlyle terms the ‘ ‘ godless ”—
century, and the earlier part of the nineteenth.
In such an age he re-asserted long-forgotten
truths. The fire burned within him, and ever
struggled to manifest itself. The light shone
in the darkness, but the darkness comprehended
it not.

Amid the gloom of a London November, in
1757—the year in which Swedenborg avers that
he witnessed the Judgment in the spirit world,
which was the precursor of the great changes
that have since'taken place in this—William
Blake was born in the neighbourhood of Golden
Square.

and freshness some of the marked events of my
Father’s life; and more especially the striking
individualities of his character, with the impressions
they created on the lives and minds of those with
whom he came in contact; running through all, the
golden thread of his musical life and work, yet
without being an approach to a scientific account
of his musical career.

It is supported by facts taken from his early
journals and a few letters, until my own memory
takes up the subject—a subject to which I can never
do justice. I have written as an observer, as a
musician, and as a daughter; but in all these I
must fall short.

Having touched upon my Father’s diaries, I
must go on to say that, above and beyond their

“ Yet” said the Host, tc he was the greatest of our family. Only when blinded by his
passion for the charming mistress of fervon
House did he act inefficiently. His rivalry
with Fairmount is indeed the darkest of his
long, honorable history. I wish he were a
figure more heroic; but I only can tell you of
him as he was. And it brings him before me
to sit here, as he sat a century since, with
collies of the same strain as fern and Beth

The learning, the respectability, the known merits of
the Historical Society, awe an individual, and command
respect to what is published under their sanction. Yet as
it may be doubtful whether they feel responsible for every
thing, which particular members, or correspondents, may
communicate, it becomes a duty to point out any exceptionable passages in their publications. If this be not
done, the weight of their influence may tend to give authority to error and pervert public opinion.

This, we hope, will apologize for a few remarks on “ A
History of Salem,” published by the Historical Society.

Passing over several other things, the character given
of Mr. Roger Williams particularly provokes examination.
The portrait of him, drawn in this history, is so unlike

any authorities for what he asserts, it would have been

When I consider the large number of books
recently issued on similar topics, and the scholar*

many of them, I am not a little discomforted
at thought of my bold scurry over so wide reach
of ground. Indeed, I have the figure before me
now — as I hint an apology — of an old-time country doctor who has ventured with his saddle-bags
and spicy nostrums into competition with a half
score of special practitioners — with their microscopy and their granules dosimetriques ; but I think,
consolingly, that possibly the old-time mediciner

The Calls of Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cornwall are an old English family
who have taken part in many political and ecclesiastical struggles
that have occurred in Britain. They came prominently into notice
during the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation, and the Cromwellian
period. They thus shared in the disputes, struggles, fortunes, and
sufferings of the party whose cause they espoused.

The editor of these Memorials has in his possession a copy of a
manuscript account of the Norfolk family written by Martin Call on
27th May 1751 at Balshagray, in the parish of Govan in Scotland,
now forming part of Partick and Govan, and also Martin Call’s
autobiography, both of which he acquired through his great-grandmother, Lucy Call, once of Alnwick, afterwards of St. Petersburg,
daughter of James Call, Alnwick, and granddaughter of Martin Call.

While printing these two manuscripts for private circulation
among his relatives and friends, the editor has added an account of
Martin Call’s ancestors, descendants, and connections collected by
him from every available source. To add to any interest he has
awakened by this narrative he has illustrated his work by portraits
and views.

Foe the most part, the Literature of Letter-Writing, properly
so-called, falls within quite modern times. From Antiquity have
come down to us several Collections of “ Letters ”; but, with
two or three notable exceptions, such only in name, they are
chiefly moral or political essays, descriptive pieces, and rhetorical declamations. In Greek Literature, one of the earliest of
them bears the magic name of Plato. Modern criticism,
generally, holds them to be forgeries; and their intrinsic merit
or interest is not so high as to make their genuineness or spuriousness matter of very great concern. Equally spurious, but
more entertaining, are the Letters of the Scythian or Tartar
prince, Anacharsis, the enterprising traveller of the Sixth
Century, B.C.1 Next, in order of time, come the so-called
Letters of Alkiphron (of the Second or Third Century of the
Christian era), the most entertaining and valuable of the species.
As pictures of Athenian life and manners, of the New Comedy
period, high interest attaches to them ; and for elegance of style,
and picturesqueness of description, they have a deserved repute.
Not much later, probably, were composed the Love-Letters of
Aristcenetus. In their day, they seem to have had some vogue.

In Lindsey’s extant letters are included extracts of
communications from forty-eight persons in the British
Isles and America. These included men of all sorts and
conditions, from an unnamed Tanner of Selby, Yorks,
and a Mr. Hinton, ironmonger of Oxford, to Dr. Dalrymple, one time Moderator of the Scottish General
Assembly, eulogised by Burns for his piety, but suspected
of unsound views on the Trinity, and Edmund Law,
Bishop of Carlisle, philosopher, theologian, and latitudinarian.

Of this mass of correspondence comparatively little has
appeared in print. Belsham made some use of the Turner
letters in his Memoirs of Lindsey, and gave a few extracts
from letters to John Jebb, a Cambridge scholar, afterwards a theological and political writer, who followed
Lindsey out of the Church of England. Rutt, in his 6 LETTERS OF THEOPHILUS LINDSEY

expected expenses should make it necessary to apply to
them for that purpose.” The employment of the circulars
in question for the purpose of his correspondence may be
evidence of Lindsey’s economy in the use of paper as well
as of his desire to bring the society before the notice of
his correspondents.

Occasionally the exigencies of his situation compelled

any considerable account had hitherto been given publicity. Continuous research disclosed the fact that our local Jewish history was
of a character at once important, and worthy of the attention of
the student, and of every coreligionist who glories in the annals of
his people in different ages and climes. Philadelphia Jews possess a
record, especially remarkable, developing particular phases—congregational and communal—proving an active participation in
works of great interest, both their own, and of a wider public
extent The recognition of this fact urged the writer on towards
the fulfilment of the task assumed, despite obstacles as numerous as
the armed men that Cadmus is fabled to have raised up in Greece.

The articles printed in the Ledger may be termed a part of the
foundation of the present work. They were simply an impulse to
proceed onward, until the desired result had been attained. With
the completion of a connected and collective history, the goal was
thought to have been reached. But not so. Reflection led to the

It has often been regretted that no life of the illustrious
“ J. K. L.,” written with full advantage of access to his private
papers, and illustrated by his correspondence, should exist. Ireland has been reproached for permitting this debt to his memory
to remain for a quarter of a century unpaid. But the apathy in
Dr. Doyle’s case is by no means exceptional. Other great and
good men who toiled for national regeneration, have met with
similar ingratitude. • In most countries the apotheosis of genius
and worth does not fully take place until after death; but impulsive Ireland too often deifies its great men in their lifetime, and,
when they can no longer work, consigns them simultaneously to
the grave and to oblivion. Exceptions could, of course, be cited,
but the rule unfortunately remains on record to reproach us. Lord
Monteagle, in adverting to the unembalmed state of Dr. Doyle’s
memory, thus eloquently alludes to the growth of this ungenerous
apathy: “Your observation is quite true respecting the rapid
growth of forgetfulness in Ireland, which, like the ivy that covers
our ancient monuments, concealing their architectural beauty,
hides also the virtuous actions of many of our ...

Samuel Mather. When it comes to indicating, however briefly, the results and influences that have proceeded from the presence
of the Mather family in Cleveland through
almost three quarters of a century, nothing
could be more difficult than to attempt an adequate measure, estimate or judgment. Recourse must be had to enumeration rather than
description, and statistics instead of interpretation. Under and in Samuel Mather and his
father, the late Samuel L. Mather, have been
concentrated many of the biggest business and
industrial interests not only of Cleveland but
of the entire Middle West, not to speak of almost countless relationships with civic movements and organizations, institutions and other
concerns that sum up and express the best life
and feeling of the community.

The Mathers have been identified, at least
financially, with the history of the Western Reserve from the time of the Connecticut Land
Company. The family name is suggestive of
the finest old traditions of New England. It
is only appropriate by way of introduction
to indicate some of the earlier branches of the
family in the respective generations. A number of Mathers are still found in England

THIS volume is published in accordance with the vote of
the General Council at its meeting in Boston, January 17,
1906. As its title indicates, it is simply a Supplement to the
General Register published in 1902. The Committee appointed by the Council began its work immediately on its
appointment in the hope that the work would be finished and
the book distributed among the State Societies by early
summer; a hope that has not been realized because of long
delays on the part of a few State Secretaries in transmitting
to the Committee desired information. Indeed, the first half
of the last month of summer had passed before all of the
reports had been received.

A supplement is in many respects an uninteresting and
unsatisfactory book to edit; but the Committee trusts that
the volume it now places in the hands of the members of
the Society will meet the object sought in the action of the
Council, viz.: to furnish the names of those who have joined
the Society since the Register was issued, together with
accompanying genealogical data. An alphabetical list of all
members of the Society, July 1, 1906, will, it is thought,
give additional interest and value to the ...

John B. Lord. The Ayer and Lord Tie Company of Chicago is the oldest and largest
organization of its kind in the country, manufacturers and dealers in railroad ties and
other heavy timbers. The operations of this
company are nation wide, and the mills, timberlands and distributing facilities comprise
an imposing industry.

One of the founders of the business and
continuously active therein for nearly half a
century is Mr. John B. Lord, a Chicagoan who
deserves mention among the.constructive citizens of Illinois.

He was born at Newton, Massachusetts,
June 5, 1848, son of Brackett and Clarissa
(Winslow) Lord. On both sides he is of
Colonial ancestry. Reared in Massachusetts,
attending public schools at Newton, and finishing his education in Wilbraham Academy, he
then assisted his father in the hay and grain
business at Newton. About the time he
reached his majority he had made a resolve
based on Horace Greeley’s injunction that
young men should go West, and accordingly he
came to Illinois. At Paris in Edgar County
he engaged in the grain business.

While there he met C. W. Powell, whose
influence had a marked bearing on his subsequent career. Later for ...

The life which is described in the following pages has both a
permanent interest and a permanent value. But the effort»
which are now made to effect the abolition of slavery in the
United States of America, seem to render the present moment
specially fit for the appearance of a memoir of Toussaikt
L’Ouverture. A hope of affording some aid to the sacred cause
of freedom, specially as involved in the extinction of slavery,
and in the l'emoval of the prejudices on which servitude mainly
depends, has induced the author to prepare the present work for
the press. If apology for such a publication were required, ifc

L’Ouverture is accessible to the English reader, for the only
memoir of him which exists in our language has long been out
of print.

The sources of information on this subject are found chiefly in
the French language. To several of these the author acknowledges deep obligation.

An attempt is being made in the
present series of contributions to The
Lincoln Kinsman to learn, if possible,
just how much of the source material
contributed by the relatives of Abraham Lincoln might still be considered
authentic. There is no attempt whatever to discredit anyone of the people
mentioned, as far as his character and
reputation is concerned, but to discover, if possible, just what were the
sources of information on which various members of the family drew
upon in making statements about their
illustrious kinsman.

The Sources
Most of the information about the
Lincoln family, as remembered by
Dennis Hanks, is made available
through the William Herndon collection of manuscripts. Dennis and John
Hanks were in Chicago in the month
of June 1865, within a few weeks
after Lincoln’s death, exhibiting the
old log cabin which the Lincolns built
on first coming to Illinois. Here Wil
liam Herndon interviewed Dennis on
June (6) and again on June 13. The
interviews have been referred to as
the First and Second Chicago Interviews. Dennis did no writing at this
time but Herndon copied down what
Dennis told him and wrote it in the
first person as ...
