buttoned close across his breast almost up to his neck. April 19. Went to the reception of Michel Chevalier; from there with Mr. Senior to the reception of M. Drouyn de Lhuys, 1805-1881. formerly Minister of Foreign Affairs. Among my morning visits was one to M.

Sumner maintained, as was his habit, reserve as to the question of candidate, writing to E. L. Pierce, April 20:— I enjoyed your brother's speech and your article,—both excellent. I can trust you at Chicago, for I know that you are true and earnest. Should Seward be rejected there, I fear it will cause him a pang. Douglas will not be put up at Charleston. I long for Hunter. Then will the question be fairly in issue,—on one side slavery, just, divine, permanent; on the other, unjust, barbarous, and to be abolished.
