Pilgrims left thoughtful spring gifts for Henry today, at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery...a beautiful little dory, heartfelt sentiments from a young admirer, and Concord Museum stickers where the new show is all about him! And the beautiful epitaph adorns the stone of his botanizing buddy, Edward Hoar, just below Author's Ridge.*
*Thanks to Ray Angelo for steering me to E. Hoar's headstone and illuminating his and Thoreau's relationship. For more about Edward Hoar, see "Edward S. Hoar Revealed," Ray Angelo.
