At last he was well again ; and then came one glorious year by Sebago Lake, where he wandered at his will in the grand old forests of Maine. He graduated at Bowdoin College in 1825, and for the next twelve years was isolated from almost every one including his old classmate Longfellow. He had returned to his home in Salem, where he wrote and read by day and by night. He published a novel which he was afterwards glad did not sell. He wrote many short stories, and in 1837 he published them in a volume. This was the Twice-Told Tales. Soon after his marriage came the second series of Tales, and a few years later Mosses from an Old Manse. All the time he was a Custom House official, till a change in political power came, and he had to tell his wife that he had been thrown out of Isso. his position. "I am glad," she said, "for now you can write your book." This book was The Scarlet Letter, that marvellous picture of the stern old Puritan days, softened and illumined by the touch of a genius. " It is the greatest book of the age," declared his publisher. It was such a success that two weeks after its publication the whole edition had been sold.
