1884. In this volume, for the first time, is a complete collection of Whittier's poetical writings. There are pieces in this collection which the author would "willingly let die." It is now to late to disown them, and Whittier must submit to the inevitable penalty of poetical as well as other sins. There are others, intimately connected with the author's life and times, which owe their tenacity of vitality to the circumstances under which they were written, and the events by which they were suggested. Illustrated.
