Description

Excerpt from Rememberances of Phillips Brooks There were no very recent Harvard men then in the seminary and Phillips Brooks came to us unheralded. I do not know that there had been much to say of him. He had stood well in his class but had made no exceptional mark. He had taught school for a few months, not alto gether successfully. He made no Immediate impression on us. He was modest, quiet, re served, with rathe'r more of the Massachusetts frostiness, than he exhibited in later years after contact with various men. He was in the class of which my brother was a member. It was through my brother that presently I came to know him well. A little later a new hall was built, some distance back or the main building; those who chose drew lots for the occupancy of one of its' dozen rooms. Brooks, Thomas Yocum now of Staten Island, my brother and I were among the fortunate ones, and were hence forth thrown a good deal together by our mutual neighborhood and our slight isolation from the other students. The seminary life was simple and primitive. Many of us sawed our own wood, made our own fires and did nearly all our own chores. The 1driver of the mail wagon did our few errands and made our few purchases at Alexandria. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
