t was also voted, on motion of Nathaniel Willis, Dwight's father-in-law, that it is not expedient to discuss the subject at the anniversary meeting. The managers were bent on suppressing further agitation; but they had to deal with an antagonist who had a spirit of determination even exceeding theirs, and he was learning a lesson of persistence which was to avail him in later years on a more conspicuous field of controversy. The public meeting was held in Tremont Temple on the morning of May 26. The audience was very large,—two thousand by estimate, largely composed of women.

He contented himself with saying that he had been disinclined to interfere with the discussion of Foote's Compromise resolutions, which had been with a single exception carried on between
