Excerpt from The Omnipresence of the Deity: A Poem 'Tis midnight: from unnumber'd shadowy spires Funereal wails for the departing day Arise, as from a host of yawning tombs; Awhile the pealing echoes float around, Then faintly ebb upon the breezy air, And wind away into the starry skies. There is a voiceless melancholy that wakes The heart's mysterious chords, until they stir Like air, by music charm'd, when on the verge Of Time's unfathom'd gulf, the dying hours Drop into dark eternity! - A Day Is dead! and with it, many a breathing shape Of life, shall breathe no more.

Excerpt from Translations From Poushkin in Memory of the Hundredth Anniversary of the Poet's Birthday The Dreamer. The moon pursues her stealthy course, The shades grow gray upon the hill, Silence has fallen on the stream, Fresh from the valley blows the wind; The songster of spring days has hushed His notes in waste of gloomy groves, The herds are couched along the fields, And calm the flight of midnight hour.

In the spring of 1895, a handsome map of the world was presented me by a friend at Baltimore; and while glancing at it, hanging on my study wall, I arose from my desk-chair, one quiet midnight hour, and traced with my pencil a route from Baltimore, over the American Continent, to San Francisco, thence to the Hawaiian Islands, Japan, China, Malay Archipelago, Ceylon, India, Assam, Arabia, Africa, Palestine, Syria, Asia Minor, Europe, and back again to the Monumental City.
