Notes

The January 1867 issue of The Atlantic Monthly, which includes the first appearance in print of three notable works, all published anonymously: Frederick Douglass's An Appeal to Congress for Impartial Suffrage, a plea for equal suffrage between the races in the aftermath of the Civil War; Edmund Clarence Stedman's Pan in Wall Street, a whimsical poem imagining the Greek god Pan visiting Wall Street, where he is eventually removed by a policeman; and Ralph Waldo Emerson's Terminus,a meditative poem on ageing, preceding its publication in the collection May-Day and Other Pieces later that year.
