Excerpt from The Connecticut Quarterly, 1895, Vol. 1: An Illustrated Magazine
Mr. And Mrs. Stowe resided in Florida, at Mandarin, for several winters, from 1866 onward. Here they had a many gabled cottage overlooking the St. Johns river, which is at this place five miles wide, in a grove of moss-grown live oaks, and with a well-tended orange grove in the rear. On the broad veranda the aged professor spent many quiet-hours, in that absolute peace and restful calm which his scholarly nature delighted in; at almost any hour the patriarchal figure might be seen sitting on the broad veranda, with a basket of books close at hand, many of them in the dead languages. The last winter spent in their southern home was that of 1883-84, as the professor's health was too precarious to permit the long journey thither the next winter. He died in Hartford, in August, 1886, full of years and honors. He was the original of Harry in Old Town Folks, a book which embodies many of his strange experiences.
