DIDIER, Franklin James (@'deer), author, born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1794; died there in 1840. He became a physician in Baltimore, and was a frequent contributor to the periodicals of his time. In 1831 he published a paper foretelling a civil war between the northern and southern states, caused by the slavery question. Dr. Didier was the author of "Didier's Letters from Paris" (New York, 1821), and "Franklin's Letters to his Kinsfolk" (Philadelphia, 1822).His son, Eugene Lemoine, author, born in Baltimore, Maryland, 22 December 1838, spent several years at Loyola College, but was not graduated. After five more years of private study he began a mercantile career, but gave it up to devote himself to literature. In 1867 he founded in Baltimore a weekly journal entitled "Southern Society," and in 1869'70 was deputy marshal of the U. S. Supreme Court, being specially detailed to act as secretary to Chief Justice Chase. He has written much over the signatures " Lemoine" and " Timon." As a critic, his style is aggressive and fearless. He has published "Life of Edgar A. Poe" (New York, 1876); "Life and Letters of Madame Bonaparte" (1879 ; republished in London, and translated into French and Italian); and a " Primer of Criticism" (1883).
