Some Humors of American History free pdf Excerpt from Some Humors of American History In Carlyle's correspondence and in the text of his "Frederick the Great" there is much bewailing of the amount of drudgery he has been obliged to go through to get at the facts with which he may construct his narrative. If I remember correctly, the lack of indexes to German books is one of his grievous complaints and in the midst of his relation of the ending of the First Silesian War, studying long-winded despatches, which are exceedingly stiff reading, he thus breaks out: "O reader, what things have to be read and carefully forgotten- what mountains of dust and ashes are to be dug through and tumbled down to Hades to disengage the smallest fraction of truly memorable! Well if, in ten cubic miles of dust and ashes you discover the tongue of a shoe-buckle that has once belonged to a man in the least heroic, and wipe your brow invoking the supernal and the infernal gods." "May the infernal gods deal with these diplomatic dealings and reduce Dryasdust to limits!" I can well imagine some enthusiastic American admirer reading Carlyle's remark in his fourth volume, "The incalculable Yankee nation itself biggest phenomenon (once thought beautifullest) of these Ages!" and at once saying: "Do, Mr. Carlyle, write the history of our Civil War." To which the Sage of Chelsea would reply in words actually used by him: "No war ever raging in my time was to me more profoundly foolish-looking." It was a "smoky chimney which had taken fire."
