CHAPTER VII: SECTOR E



WhiteSilence

These formulae, emblematic of Omniscience, condense into a few symbols the immutable laws of the universe. This mighty instrument of human power itself originates in the primitive constitution of the human mind, and rests upon a few fundamental axioms, which have eternally existed in Him who implanted them in the breast of man when he created him after His own image.

E1 §1117/ LOUISA CATHERINE (ADAMS) KUHN/ AMERICA/

Her husband was from Philadelphia, her father, Charles Francis Adams, U.S. Minister to Great Britain during the Civil War. In Florence the couple lived in the palace in the Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore, now the Banca Popolare di Milano. Notes and Queries placed her tomb a hundred years ago as visible in Sector E.


Henry Adams' sister. Her death from tetanus in Bagni di Lucca is described in the 'Chaos' chapter of his autobiography The Education of Henry Adams:

 He had been some weeks in London when he received a telegram from his brother-in-law at the Bagni di Lucca telling him that his sister had been thrown from a cab and injured, and that he had better come on. He started that night, and reached the Bagni di Lucca on the second day. Tetanus had already set in.
  The last lesson,—the sum and term of education,—began then. He had passed through thirty years of rather varied experience without having once felt the shell of custom broken. He had never seen nature,—only her surface,—the sugar-coating that she shows to youth. Flung suddenly in his face, with the harsh brutality of chance, the terror of the blow stayed by him thenceforth for life, until repetition made it more than the will could struggle with; more than he could call on himself to bear. He found his sister, a woman of forty, as gay and brilliant in the terrors of lock-jaw as she had been in the careless fun of 1859, lying in bed in consequence of a miserable cab-accident that had bruised her foot. Hour by hour the muscles grew rigid, while the mind remained bright, until after ten days of fiendish torture she died in convulsion.
  One had heard and read a great deal about death, and even seen a little of it, and knew by heart the thousand commonplaces of religion and poetry which seemed to deaden one’s senses and veil the horror. Society being immortal, could put on immortality at will. Adams being mortal, felt only the mortality. Death took features altogether new to him, in these rich and sensuous surroundings. Nature enjoyed it, played with it, the horror added to her charm, she liked the torture, and smothered her victim with caresses. Never had one seen her so winning. The hot Italian summer brooded outside, over the market-place and the picturesque peasants, and, in the singular color of the Tuscan atmosphere, the hills and vineyards of the Apennines seemed bursting with mid-summer blood. The sick-room itself glowed with the Italian joy of life; friends filled it; no harsh northern lights pierced the soft shadows; even the dying woman shared the sense of the Italian summer, the soft, velvet air, the humor, the courage, the sensual fulness of Nature and man. She faced death, as women mostly do, bravely and even gaily, racked slowly to unconsciousness, but yielding only to violence, as a soldier sabred in battle. For many thousands of years, on these hills and plains, Nature had gone on sabring men and women with the same air of sensual pleasure.
 Impressions like these are not reasoned or catalogued in the mind; they are felt as part of violent emotion; and the mind that feels them is a different one from that which reasons; it is thought of a different power and a different person. The first serious consciousness of Nature’s gesture,—her attitude towards life,—took form then as a phantasm, a nightmare, an insanity of force. For the first time, the stage-scenery of the senses collapsed; the human mind felt itself stripped naked, vibrating in a void of shapeless energies, with resistless mass, colliding, crushing, wasting, and destroying what these same energies had created and labored from eternity to perfect. Society became fantastic, a vision of pantomime with a mechanical motion; and its so-called thought merged in the mere sense of life, and pleasure in the sense. The usual anodynes of social medicine became evident artifice. Stoicism was perhaps the best; religion was the most human; but the idea that any personal deity could find pleasure or profit in torturing a poor woman, by accident, with a fiendish cruelty known to man only in perverted and insane temperaments, could not be held for a moment. For pure blasphemy, it made pure atheism a comfort. God might be, as the Church said, a Substance, but He could not be a Person.
  With nerves strained for the first time beyond their power of tension, he slowly travelled northwards with his friends, and stopped for a few days at Ouchy to recover his balance in a new world; for the fantastic mystery of coincidences had made the world, which he thought real, mimic and reproduce the distorted nightmare of his personal horror. He did not yet know it, and he was twenty years in finding it out; but he had need of all the beauty of the Lake below and of the Alps above, to restore the finite to its place. For the first time in his life, Mont Blanc for a moment looked to him what it was,—a chaos of anarchic and purposeless forces,—and he needed days of repose to see it clothe itself again with the illusions of his senses, the white purity of its snows, the splendor of its light, and the infinity of its heavenly peace. Nature was kind; Lake Geneva was beautiful beyond itself, and the Alps put on charms real as terrors; but man became chaotic, and before the illusions of Nature were wholly restored, the illusions of Europe suddenly vanished, leaving a new world to learn.
  On July 4, all Europe had been in peace; on July 14, Europe was in full chaos of war. One felt helpless and ignorant, but one might have been king or kaiser without feeling stronger to deal with the chaos. Mr. Gladstone was as much astounded as Adams; the Emperor Napoleon was nearly as stupefied as either, and Bismarck: himself hardly knew how he did it. As education, the outbreak of the war was wholly lost on a man dealing with death hand-to-hand, who could not throw it aside to look at it across the Rhine. Only when he got up to Paris, he began to feel the approach of catastrophe. Providence set up no affiches to announce the tragedy. Under one’s eyes France cut herself adrift, and floated off, on an unknown stream, towards a less known ocean. Standing on the curb of the Boulevard, one could see as much as though one stood by the side of the Emperor or in command of an army corps. The effect was lurid. The public seemed to look on the war, as it had looked on the wars of Louis XIV and Francis I, as a branch of decorative art. The French, like true artists, always regarded war as one of the fine arts. Louis XIV practiced it; Napoleon I perfected it; and Napoleon III had till then pursued it in the same spirit with singular success. In Paris, in July, 1870, the war was brought out like an opera of Meyerbeer. One felt one’s self a supernumerary hired to fill the scene. Every evening at the theatre the comedy was interrupted by order, and one stood up by order, to join in singing the Marseillaise to order.

It was senseless, too, that Louise Kuhn's tomb was lost. Then found leaning, abandoned after an attempted robbery for its marble, against a wall so its inscription was hidden. Daniel-Claudiu Dumitrescu and Nicolae Ovrei, under the direction of Alberto Casciani, next reconstructed it in its original place, known from the description a hundred years ago in Notes and Queries, moving the great octagonal base a great distance using the same methods as had Renaissance stone masons when raising the Obelisk at St Peters, with ropes and pulleys, no internal combustion engines, and then the damaged drum, into position, following having constructed a firm base in cement. Following this, if we can receive funding, will be reconstructing the marble cross to replace the original one which is now lost, and restoring the damaged surfaces of the drum. When Henry Adams' wife, Clover Adams, committed suicide from drinking photographic developing fluid, Henry had her magnificent tomb sculpted by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, now conserved in the Smithsonian Museum, alongside of sculptures by Hiram Powers, Edmonia Lewis and William Wetmore Story:

Sir George Seton of Barnes, the titular of Earl of Dunfermline had seven children, and his daughter Anne Seton married Jon Don and these were the parents of General Sir George Don, the noted longest-serving Governor of Gilbraltar, nephew of Governor Vice Admiral James Seton. His widow was Mary Margaret Lady Don, the daughter of Patrick 5th Lord Elibank and purportedly Mary Margaretta De Jonge his wife, the widow of Lord North, or more likely by his mistress Mary Mortlock. Lady Don was a great benefactor of the English Community in Florence, her fund helping indigent English persons return home. She has herself buried beside her sister's tomb who had predeceased her. Their niece Susan Murray married Brunswick Popham, creating a further network of relations.

The unpaid American Consul at the time, the Swedenborgian B32/ HIRAM POWERS, wrote to his widow: 'Mr Woodall's grave is in the same cemetery where three of my own children are buried. A more beautiful spot could hardly be found. It is against the outer wall of the city and it looks more like a beautiful garden than a place of the dead. In the spring and summer the place blooms with flowers, and even in winter there are some roses lingering over the graves. . . . I indeed go to the graves of my children and my tears fall upon their graves while I look up, giving to earth her just tribute . . . She may claim our bodies but not our souls'. Descendant notes that Allen Woodall was a Kentucky railroad conductor. His relative (sister? perhaps both tuberculor?) seems to have gone with him to Italy and to have briefly married into the Italian Pierucci family.

A beautiful Neoclassical tomb showing the wife and son mourning the spouse and father whose medallion bas relief bust is portrayed within an ourobouros This is one among several tombs with a portrait medallion: A64/ GEORGE AUGUSTUS WALLIS by Aristodemos Costoli, A15/ ANNE SUSANNA (LLOYD) HORNER by Francesco Jerace; AB7/ INA BOSS SAULTER, by Ettore Ximenes; B4/ ELENA NIKITICNA DIK, NATA AKZYNOVA by Fyodor Fyodorovitsch Kamensky; C3/ THOMAS SOUTHWOOD SMITH by Joel T. Hart; D108/ THEODORE PARKER by William Wetmore Story; D127/ JAMES ROBERTS, by Joel T. Hart?; E12/ JAMES LORIMER GRAHAM, JR by Launt Thompson; E9/ WALTER KENNEDY LAWRIE by Pietro Bazzanti, F27/ PHILIPPINA (SIMONS) CIAMPI, Joel T. Hart(?) The Raeburn portrait of 'Walter Kennedy Lawrie of Woodhall, Lauriston', 1815, now in Philadelphia may be of his grandfather, likewise the copy of Thomas Busby's A General History of Music, 1819 with his bookplate, currently on sale by an Italian bookseller, indicating it may have come to Italy by way of his grandson. His spouse is Clorinda, his son Walter, who marries a Giulia, both of whom we see sculpted on this tomb in classical garb, as we see also with the tombs for B20/ JOHAN CLAES LAGERSVARD and D126CHARLES WITAL. The Webbs add:  'Walter Kennedy Lawrie I've been trying to disentangle the ancestry of this man, who I suspect was consumptive – certainly at 31 he was young to die.  Lord Malmesbury, from time to time an incompetent Foreign Secretary, remembered him in his Memoirs, published in 1885: ''There was at that time [1832] in Florence a Scotch banker of the name of Lawrie, who had a very good gallery of pictures.  He had married a most beautiful girl of poor parents in Florence, having taken her as a child and educated her for his wife.  We made her acquaintance, and found her a very pleasant and ladylike person.' The wife was Clorinda Aretini, and (to judge from the fact that WKL received Protestant burial) it was a mixed marriage.  She, their one son, another Walter Kennedy, and his wife Julia, were all buried up at San Miniato.  The son too died youngish, on 1 February 1875, although it's not quite clear how old he was – 'in the flower of his age' according to his monument, so not much more than 40, if that.  The 'good gallery of pictures' included one that was believed to be a Raphael, but is now thought to be a copy of the 'Madonna di Loreto' in the Musée Condé at Chantilly.  The younger Walter Kennedy Lawrie in the 1850s had it scrutinised by experts in Rome who pronounced it to be genuine (only modern x-rays have proved otherwise). What the elder Walter Kennedy's activity as a banker was I don't know – Malmesbury is the only authority that I have for this occupation – but where his money came from is hardly in doubt.  His father William Kennedy was a Jamaica planter, born in 1769, who in 1802 inherited Laurieston, an estate in Galloway, from a Walter Sloane Laurie.  As people so often did in these circumstances, he added the name Laurie (or Lawrie) to his own.  He already had children, including a Thomas who probably stayed in the West Indies, and a William who probably came with him to Scotland, but I think he was married again, in Edinburgh in 1805, to the daughter of another West Indies planter. Our Walter – who was given the name of the man from whom his father had acquired the Galloway estate – looks like the child of this marriage and was born (someone says) 20 August 1806, but I can't find out where.  It was at some point in that year that his father William received a letter from the manager of his estate in Jamaica, which was called Woodhall, reporting on the purchase of slaves and lamenting the shortage of females, which was due to 'the lengths to which the abolition business has been carried in England'.   William Kennedy died in 1811, and I suspect that the Raeburn is a portrait of him, not of a Walter.  Not only do these two names often get confused, but I simply can’t find any previous Walter Kennedy Lawrie.  The fact that William Kennedy took the additional name only on his inheritance in 1802 rather argues against it.   The name Woodhall was later given to the family's estate in Galloway, which was inherited by the son William already mentioned, who would on this reading be Walter's older half-brother.  Was young Walter delicate?  Was that why he turns up, aged not yet 20, in Florence? (He subscribes to Vieusseux in February of that year.)  And did he transmit a weak constitution to his son?  What he did transmit was money.  If Malmesbury was right that his wife's family were poor, they suddenly found that as the child's guardians they had the management of a fortune.  And part of it – which I have only just found out – consisted of palazzi, one in Borgo SS Apostoli and one on the opposite bank of the Arno, which housed the much-frequented Hotel variously called the Quattro Nazioni or Quatre Nations.  There seems to have been a bit of a spat with an hotelier who thought he owned it before the guardians put in one of their own – an Aretini – as manager in 1839.  They were now calling it the Albergo Reale dell' Arno, although to judge by Vieusseux people went on staying at the Quatre Nations'.

WhiteSilence

Life may give for love to death
Little; what are life's gifts worth
To the dead wrapt round with earth?
Yet from lips of living breath
Sighs or words we are fain to give,
All that yet, while yet we live,
Life may give for love to death.

Dead so long before his day,
Passed out of the Italian sun
To the dark where all is done,
Fallen upon the verge of May;
Here at life's and April's end
How should song salute my friend
Dead so long before his day?

Not a kindlier life or sweeter
Time, that lights and quenches men,
Now may quench or light again,
Mingling with the mystic metre
Woven of all men's lives with his
Not a clearer note than this,
Not a kindlier life or sweeter.

In this heavenliest part of earth
He that living loved the light,
Light and song, may rest aright,
One in death, if strange in birth,
With the deathless dead that make
Life the lovelier for their sake
In this heavenliest part of earth.

Light, and song, and sleep at last --
Struggling hands and suppliant knees
Get no goodlier gift than these.
Song that holds remembrance fast,
Light that lightens death, attend
Round their graves who have to friend
Light, and song, and sleep at last.
