Good Talking and Good Manners: Fine Arts, With a Paper on the Social Law (Classic Reprint)
(Five or six Clubs have been formed by ladies in this city...)
Five or six Clubs have been formed by ladies in this city within a short time, I am told, for the study of the Pine A rts. When I have enquired what Fine Arts they are, the old names have always been given. A rchitecture, Painting, Sculpture, and the rest. The Arts are very Fine, and there is a great deal to be known about them that is worth knowing, the history of them, and the principles, and the triumphs, and the great names. Art consists in giving form to ideals in every kind, ideals of nature, of human minds and human life.

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
Frederic Dan Huntington was an American clergyman and the first Protestant Episcopal bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York.
Huntington was born on May 28, 1819 in Hadley, Massachusetts, the youngest of the eleven children born to Dan and Elizabeth Huntington. He grew up on the family farm "Forty Acres, " the home of both his mother and his grandmother, Elizabeth Porter Phelps.
Huntington graduated at Amherst College in 1839 and at the Harvard Divinity School in 1842.
In 1842-1855 Huntington was pastor of the South Congregational Church of Boston, and in 1855-1860 was preacher to the university and Plummer professor of Christian Morals at Harvard; he then left the Unitarian Church, with which his father had been connected as a clergyman at Hadley, resigned his professorship and became pastor of the newly established Emmanuel Church of Boston. He had refused the bishopric of Maine when in 1868 he was elected to the diocese of central New York. He was consecrated on the 9th of April 1S69, and thereafter lived in Syracuse. He died in Hadley, Massachusetts, on the 11th of July 1904. His more important publications were Lectures on Human Society (1860); Memorials of a Quiet Life (1874); and The Golden Rule applied to Business and Social Conditions (1892).
