- Note Relating to Cather
- "Miss Rossetti had the misfortune to be the better light of a family richly endowed with genius, and the simple music of her poetry is almost drowned by the loftier themes and deeper cadences of her brother. His greatness threatens to absorb hers altogether, as Dante's did Sordello's. 'So doth the greater glory dim the less.'"
