William Wetmore Story and His Friends, Vol. 1 : From Letters, Diaries, and Recollections (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from William Wetmore Story and His Friends, Vol. 1: From Letters, Diaries, and Recollections There came a moment when the spell in question began to weaken, and in that subtle revolution our subject, could we fully give our selves to it, would find its dramatic climax. Its limit is marked, in our own direction, its modern side, by two or three such pregnant transitions. They accord with many other things that repre sent the inevitable quickening of the pace. I think of the American who started on his Wom derjahre after the Civil War quite as one of the moderns divided by a chasm from his progenitors and elder brothers, carried on the wave as they were not, and all supplied with introductions.
