Reminiscences of John Greenleaf Whittier s Life at Oak Knoll

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Excerpt from Reminiscences of John Greenleaf Whittier's Life at Oak Knoll: Danvers, Mass The following summer, Mr. Whittier spent a week at the Isle of Shoals, where he met his friend and admirer, Mr. Nathaniel Thayer of Boston and Lancaster, Massachusetts. Mr. Thayer was but little acquainted with the localities of Danvers, and he asked Mr. Whittier if he would not prefer a residence nearer to the city of Salem, at the same time remarking that the estate called "Kernwood" was then for sale, and that he would be pleased to see Mr. Whittier permanently residing there, intimating the pleasure it would give him to purchase the estate for Mr. Whittier. Mr. Whittier made a somewhat evasive reply, not really appreciating Mr. Thayer's generous intentions. A few days after Mr. Whittier's return to "Oak Knoll," he received a letter from Mr. Thayer containing the offer of "Kernwood" to him as a free gift, should he prefer to reside there rather than at "Oak Knoll." Mr. Whittier consulted the family in regard to it, and learning that they preferred to retain the independence of their own home, he gratefully declined his friend's most generous offer. Although Mr. Whittier strongly desired to become a joint proprietor of "Oak Knoll," at the time of its purchase from Mr. William A. Lander, in the year eighteen hundred seventy-five, yet, in accordance with the wise counsels of Col. Johnson, he came to his home, in Danvers, untrammelled by any business complications, in order that he might be as free to go from our home, as he was always made free and welcome to its hospitalities. In the quiet atmosphere of "Oak Knoll," Mr. Whittier cast aside the cares of domestic life. The years of advancing age glided peacefully onward, past the limit of three score years and ten, and four score years brought to him no realizing sense of its prophecy of labor and of weakness.

It was originally published in four installments of the Atlantic Monthly in 1896; this Broadview Edition is based on the Atlantic serialization and also includes the four other stories set in Dunnet Landing.

Despite these challenges, Child may be most remembered for her poem "Over the River and Through the Wood." Her grandparents' house, which she wrote about visiting, was restored by Tufts University in 1976 and stands near the Mystic River on South Street, in Medford, Massachusetts.A volume of her letters, with an introduction by John G.
