Thoreau truly says that a man "can attend but one funeral in his life "; and, in the same sense, I say that a man can see but one city. Chicago is my one. Perhaps, if you should go there looking for it, you could no more find my Chicago than I can find Zretazoola, the city of Sombelene—"Zretazoola of the climbing ways"—or that other city of Thalanna on the edge of the desert, at whose gates Aoob and Bel-Narb sit and argue as to whether cities are lovelier at dusk or at daybreak.

Thompson talked of books—Thoreau, Balzac, Taine—anything and everything but love. And each night the girl stood half hidden in the shadow and asked him to return. His visits ended one night when he 133 [pgbrk] 134 THE SMART SET told her abruptly that he was going away—going back to the city.

"There have been heroes" says Thoreau, "for whom this world seemed expressly prepared" and beside whose "pure primeval natures" "the distinctions of morality, of right and wrong, sense and nonsense, are petty and have lost their significance."

LORD DUNSANY—MYTH-MAKER By Odell Shepard Author of "The Paradox of Thoreau," etc. OR all practical American purposes, Irishmen may be divided into three sorts: policemen, politicians, and poets. One reason, appar ently, why the present population of the island assays so large a proportion of poets is that the policemen and politicians mostly emigrate to Amer ica, while the poets remain at home.

Thoreau lived on the top floor of his one-story hut at Walden Pond. Immortal books must be written where the air is not heavy with passion. The room where Herbert Tree lived—his "dome " as it was always called—was really the space under the dome of His Majesty's Theatre, where rats and fire-escapes would normally have been kept, but which he made into an agreeable place for work.

His set of Thoreau is lodged beside Lord SHELVING SYSTEMS Chesterfield. His copy of Sterne's " Sentimental Journey " is wedged between two volumes of John Wesley's "Journal! " I need not harrow the reader's sympathies with further gruesome details.

How can we hope, after all, to see a tree or rock or clear north sky if we do not adopt a little of its mode of life, a little of its time.”109 This reflection likely reveals something of Adams’s working process: it sounds slow and contemplative (recall Thoreau in Walden: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...and see if I could not learn what it had to teach…”).110 Perhaps Adams alluded to the frustrations of some of his own audience when he continued, still speaking about survey photography: 108 Adams, “Introduction,” The American Space, 1-2. 109 Ibid 2 110 Adams first practiced silence and stillness in nature as a child with his father: “Down in the big swamp, down the hill from our house in New Jersey, one of the first lessons I had was if you sit still long enough, you will begin to see remarkable things.

The pilgrimage upon which I set out later in the day had been made by thousands, but at a pace suggested by the etymological derivation which Thoreau in an essay on walking has given to the word "saunterer"—one who goes "a la Sainte Terre," a " sainte-terrer," a " saunterer."
