Excerpt from The Atlantic Monthly and Its Makers

I must tell you about a little dinner-party I gave about two weeks ago. It would be proper, perhaps, to state that the object, first, was to confer with my literary friends on a somewhat extensive literary project, the particulars of which I shall reserve till you come. But to the party: my invitations included only R. W. Emerson, H. W. Longfel low, J. R. Lowell, Mr. Motley (the Dutch Republic man), 0. W. Holmes, Mr. Cabot, and Mr. Underwood, our literary man. Imagine your uncle at the head of such a table, with such guests. The above-named were the only ones invited, and they were all present. We sat down at three p.m., and arose at eight. The time occupied was longer by about four hours and thirty minutes than I am in the habit of consuming in that kind of occupation, but it was the rich est time intellectually by all odds that I have ever had.
