[A. H., Fay, Emma and Frank Sellers]
2gospel. Have been up the Hudson & was delighted to find fresh traces of ice-action everywhere along that historic river. It is flowing in a glacial trough & every line in its landscapes is a glacial line scarce at all modified as yet by the post glacial agents. The very first day in New York - I found all the rocks in Central park were scared by the ancient ice sheet, & in every way as glacial in form as any in Alaska. Went to Boston, Concord, Manchester Cambridge Brookline etc etc etc. Dined with Emerson's son & family in Concord. They seemed to regard me as a long lost son. Met a college mate of Thoreau. Went to Walden pond, visited Emersons & Thoreaus graves & laid flowers on them. Col. Higginson took us to the mansions of Lowell & Longfellow. unchanged as yet. Had a good time with Prof. Sargent
