- DescriptionExcerpt from Stories by Foreign Authors Three o'clock had just struck from the tower of St. Nicholas, Leipzig, on the afteron of December 22d, 1768, when a man, wrapped in a loose overcoat, came out of the door of the University. His countenance was exceedingly gentle, and on his features cheerfulness still lingered, for he had been gazing upon a hundred cheerful faces; after him thronged a troop of students, who, holding back, allowed him to precede them: the passengers in the streets saluted him, and some students, who pressed forwards and hurried past him homewards, saluted him quite reverentially. He returned their salutations with a surprised and almost deprecatory air, and yet he knew, and could t conceal from himself, that he was one of the best beloved, t only in the good city of Leipzig, but in all lands far and wide. It was Christian Furchtegott Gellert, the Poet of Fables, Hymns, and Lays, who was just leaving his college.
