Memoir of the Hon. free pdf Excerpt from Memoir of the Hon.: Benjamin Robbins Curtis, Prepared Benjamin Robbins Curtis was born in Watertown, Massachusetts, on the fourth day of November, 1809. His father was Captain Benjamin Curtis, master of a vessel trading between Boston and Valparaiso, who was half-brother to the late George Ticknor. His grandfather on his fathers side was Dr. Benjamin Curtis, who graduated from Harvard College in 1771. His mother was Lois Robbins, of Watertown, who has been justly described as a lady of "great intelligence and the highest womanly virtues." The early life of eminent men does not always give promise of future greatness. The general rule expressed in the familiar line of Wordsworth, which has passed into a proverb, "The child is father of the man," does not apply to every case. There are men who have filled the highest stations in Church and State, who have risen to distinction in every liberal profession, and in every honorable calling, whose character in boyhood and youth excited rather solicitude than high expectation. There have been others who have held the highest rank, and borne off all the honors in school and college, who seem to have culminated at the close of their academic course. But in the case of Mr. Curtis, the man was clearly prefigured in the boy. That which he became at maturity was but a realization of his youthful ideal.
