Poems and Miscellanies free pdf Excerpt from Poems and Miscellanies This volume is printed for the use of friends, as a memorial of the late Miss Eliza Townsend, a lady whose gifts and virtues had, for many years, drawn around her the unfeigned respect and love of a large circle in this community. She was born in Boston, June, 1788, spent her life in her native city, and died at her house in Hawkins street, on the night of January 12th, 1854, in the sixty-sixth year of her age. It is an act of simple justice to present a prefatory record, however inadequate, of grateful reminiscence. To attempt to delineate in a few words, and in strong, life-like colors, the several distinct points, each by itself, which present themselves as we remember Miss Townsend, would be like trying to decompose a fine fragrance into its component parts. She has been known and distinguished among us as a literary character, not of the school of the present day so much as of a past period. Her acquaintance with the British classics was very remarkable- and in the walks of English literature, and among the thoughts of the worthies of England's golden age, she was entirely at home. On themes like these she was truly eloquent- for here her heart and intellect met in happy sympathy. Her friends of former days, as well as those of a recent period, cannot fail to remember with what delight they were accustomed to listen to the easy flow, the rich and sometimes gorgeous style of her conversation, when she was interested and excited by animating trains of thought- for there have been among us few so good talkers. She had a quick and strong perception of poetical beauty and sublimity. No one could be acquainted with Miss Townsend, without perceiving that her mind was of a high order.
