Excerpt from The Bay State Monthly, 1885, Vol. 2: A Massachusetts Magazine of Literature, History, Biography, and State Progress
After teaching for a while Blaine left Kentucky and went to Philadelphia to study law. While there he taught for a short time at the blind asylum and also wrote for the newspapers. He soon, however, was irresistibly attracted to the State of Maine, and left his native State for a home in the community with which his name is now indissolubly connected. It is somewhat remarkable that this am bitions young man should have gone Eastinstead of West, choosing a State which the young men were fast leaving - one whose population in the last forty years has increased very little. He is, indeed, almost the only man who has gone East 'in the last half-century and risen to any prominence.
Mr. Blaine went to Maine in 18 5 3, and soon afterward married Miss Stanwood, whose family are well known in New England. Through their inﬂuence he soon found an occupation in journalism, and until 1860 was actively engaged in editing at different times the Kennebec Journal and the Portland Daily Adver tiser. He retained a part ownership in the Kennebec Journal until it began to hamper him in his political career, and then he sold out. A friend has said of him as a journalist: I have often thought that a great editor, as great perhaps as Horace Greeley, was lost when Mr. Blaine went into politics.
