Abstract:

Mason's memoirs "written without any attempt at elegant phraseology or fine writing, but Currente Calamo as his thoughts and remembrances arose to his mind between sundown and dark. For the amusement of his Grandchildren." Begins with account of his parents' recollections of the Revolution, and his own childhood memories of Boston. Continues with detailed accounts of his friendship with artists and patrons--including Gilbert Stuart, Washington Allston, Horatio Greenough, Thomas Sully, and Charles Robert Leslie--as well as other important New Englanders including George Peabody, the Danas, and Cardinal Cheverus. Includes copies of unpublished letters from Allston, Greenough, and others. Each volume has photographs pasted onto the endpapers. Contains notes and corrections in author's own hand.
