The meetings were prolonged during eight evenings, from half-past 7 till nearly or quite eleven, and sometimes till nearly midnight. May 28. June 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, and 23. Sumner opened the debate on the first evening, occupying an hour and a half, leaving the rest of the time to three speakers who replied. A report of his speech is printed in the Boston Courier, June 1, 1847. The speech is like his later one, though going more into details on some points, and being quite severe on the meagre quality of the Society's reports, particularly the last one, which he thought a small month's work. Between its flimsy covers is all that we have done. Our three tho

As a stranger to the Senate and to all legislative bodies, I regard it to be my first duty to understand the body in which I have a seat before rushing into its contests. To George Sumner, June 17:— You ought to be
