The Recollections which he had been engaged upon for a long time were on their way to the printer when he died in May. It is peculiarly fortunate that his reminiscences have been preserved, for they are not only delightful on the personal side and full of entertaining anecdotes, but they also form in a sense an intimate literary history of our country for over fifty years."...order form.
