Excerpt from Daniel Ricketson and His Friends: Letters, Poems, Sketches, Etc

Born to a modest competence, and infected with that taste for free thinking and social reform which was the prevalent contagion in New England from 1830 to 1860, Mr. Ricketson, though studious in the classics and in English literature, and versed in the elements of law, could not subject himself to the requirements Of a college, or the indignities Of an ordinary law practice; and so devoted himself to rural pursuits, philanthropy, and literature, emulous Of Cowper and the rural poets, and fond of the correspondence Of literary men in America and Europe. His Quaker antecedents made him an abolitionist his aversion to tame conformity drew him towards the society Of men like Thoreau, while his love of music and hospitality attracted to his pleasant home men of society, like his lifelong friend, George William Curtis.

About the Author:

Henry David Thoreau was an American author, poet, and philosopher, who is best known for his works Waldena treatise about living in concert with the natural worldand Civil Disobedience, in which he espoused the need to morally resist the actions of an unjust state. Thoreau s work heavily reflects the ideologies of the American transcendentalists, and he has long been considered a leading figure in the movement along with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson Alcott, and, at first, Nathaniel Hawthorne (who changed his views later in life). In addition to his writing, which totaled more than twenty volumes, Thoreau was an active abolitionist, and lectured regularly against the Fugitive Slave Law. Thoreau died in 1862, and is buried along with Louisa May Alcott, Ellery Channing, and other notable Americans in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts.
