Overview

Excerpt from The Personality of Emerson

Lecture occasionally, and after meeting Alcott, Parker, Mrs. Cheney, and others of his friends. I had walked up from Cambridge to Concord over the Turnpike, on my way to visit Henry Shaw, a former schoolmate, in Sudbury. Reaching Emer son's house, at the corner where the Cambridge Turnpike debouches into the Lexington road (now Massachusetts Avenue), about eleven in the morning, I rang the bell and was shown at once into the study, where Emerson sat in his accustomed chair, facing the Fates of Michel Angelo over the mantel. He was either reading or writing, as his morning habit was. I had no letter of introduction but perhaps used the name of some mutual friend, Alcott or Parker; was received graciously, and questioned about the young men in College, where I had just ended my Sophomore year, with some small tokens of distinction among classmates, -a Society Poem, or something of the kind. I observed that, after giving me one of those gently piercing glances which took in so much of the character of his.
