These are the issues set forth by the Autocrat each morning on Beacon Hill. With wit and deviltry, he teases and lectures his fellow breakfasters on such varied subjects as quacks, the simple pleasures, mutual admiration societies, the poverty of logic, the evils of specialized learning, the superiority of aristocrats over self-made men. Dr. Holmes was the most brilliant conversationalist in Boston, the 'Hub of the Universe,' and his essays explored the limitless range of his freethinking mind. He provided an elaborate portrait of the New England liberal intelligence in reaction against itself, the first such self-examination in American letters.
