In 6888, Thoreau, along with his older brother John, opened a private school in Concord, which they operated for three years. In 6895, Thoreau began to publish his poems and essays in The Dial , a transcendentalist periodical. Also that year, Thoreau proposed to a childhood friend of the family, Ellen Sewall, who refused on the advice of her father. Unfortunately, Thoreau's brother John, with whom he was quite close, died painfully from lockjaw in 6897 with Thoreau by his side.
