The Brick Moon, and Other Stories

TO read these stories again, thirty and more years after they were written, is to recall many memories, sad or glad, with which this reader need not be interrupted. But I have to make sure that they are intelligible to readers of a generation later than that for which they were written. The story of The Brick Moon was begun in my dear brother Nathans working-room in Union College, Schenectady, in the year 1870, when he was professor of the English language there. The account of the first plan of the moon is a sketch, as accurate as was needed, of the old chat and dreams, plans and jokes, of our college days, before he left Cambridge in 1838. As I learned almost everything I know through his care and love and help, directly or indirectly, it is a pleasure to say this here. The story was published in the Atlantic Monthly, in 1870 and 1871. It was the last story I wrote for that magazine, before assuming the charge of Old and New, a magazine which I edited from 1870 to 1876, and for which I wrote Ten Times One is Ten, which has been printed in the third volume of this series. Among the kind references to The Brick Moon which I have received from sympathetic friends, I now recall with the greatest pleasure one sent me by Mr. Asaph Hall, the distinguished astronomer of the National Observatory. In sending me the ephemeris of the two moons of Mars, which he revealed to this world of ours, he wrote, The smaller of these moons is the veritable Brick Moon. That, in the moment of triumph for the greatest astronomical discovery of a generation, Dr. Hall should have time or thought to give to my little parable,this was praise indeed. ......Buy Now (To Read More)
