No. 530 BROADWAY.

1861.

Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1850,

BY ROBERT CARTER & BROTHERS,

In the Clerk's Office of the Southern District of New York.

STEREOTYPED BY THOMAS B. SMITH,

216 WILLIAM STREET, N. Y.

"I sometimes hold it half a sin

To put in words the grief I feel;
For words, like nature, half reveal
And half conceal the soul within.

But, for the unquiet heart and brain,
A use in measured language lies;
The sad mechanic exercise,
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.

In words, like weeds, I'll wrap me o'er,
Like coarsest clothes against the cold;
But that large grief which these infold
Is given in outline and no more."

TENNYSON'S "In Memoriam."
