Parkman and Cooper

Van Wyck Brooks(1886-1963), The World of Washington Irving (New York: E.P. Dutton & Company, Inc., 1944), p. 332, footnote (on Francis Parkman and James Fenimore Cooper):
He and Cooper had numbers of traits in common. Both despised commerce and business men, industrialism and all its works and Americans who swore by Europe and disparaged their country. They were alike in their pride, their courage and their wilfulness and in their contempt for every kind of ism.
