42  “Authorities on Henry Inman’s oil miniature of Edgar Allan Poe:

BOSTON, March 12, 1917.

DEAR MISS PHILLIPS: — I looked carefully at the painting supposed to be a portrait of Edgar Allan Poe and compared it with various daguerreotype prints of the poet. The painting has so many of the anatomical characteristics of Poe that it must have been painted from life or from a good daguerreotype.

Very sincerely yours,  
EDWARD B. LANE, M.D.

Because daguerreotype process was not placed before the world prior to 1839, this E. A. Poe oil miniature must have been Inman’s, 1831 life-study of the poet.

230 Central Park South, NEW YORK, June 20, 1917.

DEAR MISS PHILLIPS: — I was at the Museum yesterday and examined the miniature of Poe by Inman. It is a rather hasty study of Poe by Inman. It has all the freshness of color and freedom of touch obtained under these circumstances. The likeness is unmistakable, although lacking in quality of Poe’s deeper thought and sympathies, or I might say intensity. But it is a reflection of the man as seen by Inman [in 1831].

Cordially yours,  
GEORGE H. STORY.

Curator Emeritus of Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts, New York [page 1628:]

BOSTON, June 22, 1917.

DEAR MISS PHILLIPS: — Poe was above all a poet, and the chief value of Inman’s portrait of him is, that its dominant element is poetic. No other picture of him can compare with it. Its existence is one of the most important facts of the history of his life.

Yours truly,  
T. H. BARTLETT.

Professor of Modeling, Mass. Institute of Technology.

The late Major Neilson Poe, Baltimore, Md., when about fifteen, saw the living Edgar Allan Poe, who was also seen by the late Miss Susan V. C. Ingrain when about sixteen years of age: both Major Poe and :Hiss Ingram stated when shown photographic prints of this Inman painting, — “This is a portrait of Poc!”

This oil miniature of Edgar Allan Poe, by Henry Inman, N.A., was bought at Philadelphia Art Galleries, Nov. 4, 1915, — listed as from Frank E. Marshall, Secretary of Commercial Exchange, Collection at Germantown, Pennsylvania,-by R. C. and N. M. Vose Galleries, Boston, Mass. By owner’s courtesy their copyright reprint appears in these pages.

Mr. Leroy Ireland, Philadelphia and New York City, a longtime friend of F. E. Marshall, Esq., states that this oil miniature “was owned by Mr. Marshall many years and was undoubtedly Poe.’

A CHINESE RAVEN

THE FU-NIAO, OR BIRD OF FATE

’T was in the month of chill November,

As I can very well remember —

In dismal, gloomy, crumbling halls,

Betwixt moss-covered, reeking walls,

An exiled poet lay —

 

On his bed of straw reclining,

Half despairing, half repining;

When athwart the window sill

Flew in a bird of omen ill,

And seemed inclined to stay.

 

To my book of occult learning,

Suddenly I thought of turning,

All the mystery to know,

Of that shameless owl or crow,

That would not go away.

 

“Wherever such a bird shall enter,

‘T is sure some power above has sent her

(So said the mystic book) to show

The human dweller forth must go, —

“But where it did not say.

 

Then anxiously the bird addressing,

And my ignorance confessing,

“Gentle bird, in mercy deign

The will of Fate to me explain, —

Where is my future way?” [page 1647:]

 

It raised its head as if ‘t were seeking

To answer me by simply speaking,

Then folded up its sable wing,

Nor did it utter anything,

But breathed a ” Well-a-day!”

 

More eloquent than any diction,

That simple sigh produced conviction,

Furnishing to me the key

Of the awful mystery

That on my spirit lay.

 

“Fortune’s wheel is ever turning,

To human eye there’s no discerning

Weal or woe in any state;

Wisdom is to bide your fate”;

This is what it seemed to say

By that simple ” Well-a-day.”
