The artistic and literary world recognized in Henry W. Domett an author of repute, a finished essayist and a brilliant scholar. At one time, while engaged in business, he was the regular correspondent of The Boston Transcript in this city, and afterwards, for many years, the music and art critic of The Mail and Express. He traveled extensively, and his wanderings led him into many strange and hitherto unknown paths. His freedom from conservatism and prejudice made him a choice companion for young people, and his hospitality made his home a center of cultivation and illumination. He was wonderfully active, vigorous and fresh in spirit, and a choice companion in any circle.
