general denials of possibility. 

 

It is recorded that the mother of Charles Kingsley believed in maternal 

impressions, and during her period of pregnancy exercised her 

imagination and emotions in the direction of wishing, and imagining, 

that the coming child should have the same love of Devonshire scenery 

that so delighted her. The result proved her theory, for though Kingsley 

never saw Devonshire until he was a man of thirty years of age, every 

Devonshire scene had a mysterious charm for him throughout his entire 

life. It is said that Robert Burns was so strongly impressed parentally 

by the old Scotch songs and ballads that his mother sung during her 

pregnancy, that his whole nature longed to express itself in like 

measure and substance. He always believed that his poetic spirit was 

kindled by this tendency on the part of his mother during the period 

preceding his birth. 

 

The mother of Napoleon Bonaparte during several months of her pregnancy, 

accompanied her husband during his military campaigns in Corsica, and 

during the entire term she lived in an atmosphere of battles, military 

strategy, and troops. When the boy was very young he manifested an 

unusual interest in war and conquest, and his whole mind had the 

military bent, although his brothers were in no wise remarkable in this 

direction. The artist, Flaxman, stated that his mother had related to 

him how for several months prior to his birth she had spent many hours 

each day studying drawings and engravings, and endeavoring to visualize 

by memory the beautiful figures of the human body drawn by the masters. 

The result was that from early childhood Flaxman manifested an intense 

delight in drawing; and in after life his drawings were regarded as 

masterpieces. He, and his mother, always attributed his talent to the 

parental impressions above mentioned. 

 

"Buffalo Bill" was believed to owe his characteristics to the mental 

states of his mother, the family living in Missouri during the days of 

frontier fights and disturbances, the mother being called upon several 

times to exercise resourceful courage and fortitude. A well-known worker 

along the lines of liberal Christianity is said to have attributed his 

tendencies in that direction to the prayers of his mother, during her 

pregnancy, that the child might be true to the teachings of the Christ, 

and should be a laborer in the cause of human brotherhood. This man, 

relating the fact, said: "I may have been converted before I was born." 

A well-known writer along the lines of moral philosophy is believed by
