Products of New England. ― How many of the greatest women of our time has New England nurtured? Maria Mitchell, who nightly reads the illuminated missal of the heavens, as we read the daily papers and with far more profit; Harriet Beecher Stowe, whom nobody can write down ― not even herself; Charlotte Cushman, who while she kept the English stage, was the grandest actress on it; Harriet Hosmer, whose name is carved in marble; and Ida Lewis, whose "name is writ in water," and yet is imperishable. On the whole, I am glad I am not a born Yankee woman; tor [sic], were I one, I might not feel to say what I now say, and propose to stand by; and among its other admirable manufactures, New England produces the best educated girls, the truest wives, the noblest mothers, and the most glorious old maids in the world.
