Description

Excerpt from Little Journeys to the Homes of American Authors They are gone - writer and subject gone. The dust of Emerson rests in Sleepy Hollow a great unhewn bowlder marks the spot. He died in 1882; Curtis followed ten years later. But their works live after them for beau tiful lives and great thoughts endure. They make that sweet minor chord in the choir invisible, whose music is the gladness of the world. Curtis was in his twenty-ninth year when he wrote this sketch; Emerson was fifty - his fame secure. No living writer, no matter how richly gifted, could write so precious a monograph as this on the same theme; 't would lack that quaint old flavor and fragrance, as of lavender and thyme.
