Spain. Sumner, writing to Longfellow from Montpellier, France, Jan. 24, 1859, said that M. Moudot, the lecturer on Spanish literature at the University, had changed his purpose to translate Ticknor's work into French, being discouraged by its dryness and dictionary character. He cannot look at it face to face. Besides, his style is miserably dry and crude. As a politician here he is bitter and vindictive for Webster. To Thomas Brown, Ante, vol. i. p. 156. Lanfire House, Scotland, June 24:— I mourned the death of Mr. Colden, David C. Colden. He married Miss Wilkes, whose sister married Lord Jeffrey. Ante, Memoir, vol. i. p. 359, note. who was an amiable and most excellent gentleman. For several years I never failed to enjoy his very agreeable hospitality whenever I was in New York. I know no house that was more attractive; his wife was a fascinating lady. And Lord Jeffrey is gone too, and Mrs. Jeffrey! I hope the Empsons are well. Are they still at Haylebury,

. The influence of these families ramified in the society of Boston; and this debate, in connection with Sumner's political divergence from its traditions and interests, helped to bring him into general social disfavor. Sumner was supported by Dr. Howe, who spoke at great length on two evenings, making a minute comparison of the two prison systems, and earnestly advocating that of Pennsylvania; June 2 and 16. Dr. Howe's speech of June 16 is fully reported in the Semi-Weekly Courier, June 24. by Henry H. Fuller, a hard-headed lawyer, who spoke twice, commending the resolutions in terse and pertinent remarks; and by Hillard, who appeared only once in the debate, urging fairness in the reports of the Society, and rebuking an anonymous newspaper attack on Sumner. Sumner, Howe, and Hillard were the subjects of coarse attacks in communications printed in the Boston Post, June 2, 4, 9, and 22. The first article was replied to by a writer in that journal, June 5.

who had executed his worst orders. After all, the audacity of the Democrats, who had no scruples against aggressive war, the extension of slavery, and the dismemberment of a sister republic, command more respect than the indecision and pusillanimity of the Whigs. Mr. Webster was not in the Senate an antagonist of the war itself. At home when the war bill passed (May 12), he was in his seat two days afterwards; but he did not seize the opportunity to denounce the invasion. He avowed (June 24) his readiness to vote all necessary supplies, without reference to the origin of the war. He kept out of the heats of the contest, more intent on his briefs than on the vital questions pending; apparently gave his sanction to his son's service as a volunteer with a captain's commission; and confined his criticism of Polk and his Cabinet chiefly to incidents and details.

The former died in 1889, and the latter died in Cincinnati in 1892. other delegates, who approved their public protest against General Taylor's nomination, and it was decided to call a national convention to be held at Buffalo in August. The two protesting delegates from Massachusetts upon their return home addressed their constituents,—Wilson by letter, and Allen in person,—both reviewing the proceedings at Philadelphia, and summoning the people to reject them. Boston Whig, June 19 and 24. 1848. Wilson gave an account of this period, including 1845-1851, in a speech in the Massachusetts Senate, Feb. 24, 1852 (Boston Commonwealth, March 1, 1852), and in a letter to L. V. Bell (Commonwealth, July 14, 1852). The meeting. which was addressed by Allen, passed a resolution which deserves a perpetual record: Massachusetts wears no chains and spurns all bribes; she goes now, and will ever go, for free soil and free men, for free lips and a free press, for a free land and a free world

You ought to be a diplomatist. Another motive to me for discontent with my present position is the fear that I may stand in your way. It would be difficult for an Administration to appoint the brother of one so obnoxious as myself without pledges or explanations, which you could not stoop to give. If I were a private man, there would be no influence against you on this score. George Sumner did not sympathize with his brother's earnestness on the slavery and peace questions. Again, June 24:— In answer to your inquiries, let me say that there are signs of a contest in Massachusetts such as very rarely occurs. The bitterness of the Whigs is intense, and they will spare no effort or money to regain the control of the State. I do not think they can succeed. The Free Soilers are united and determined. Our paper The Commonwealth. has just passed into the hands of Mr. Joseph Lyman, an editor and proprietor, assisted by Mr. Palfrey. I think it will be the most powerful

Bemis wrote in his journal an account of a conversation in Sumner's room, with Motley and Parker present, when Sumner spoke of John A. Andrew, hoping he would soon be governor of Massachusetts, and recalling Judge Peleg Sprague's tribute to his ability as a lawyer. This was Sumner's last intercourse with Parker, whom he accompanied, June 24, to the railway station as the latter left Paris for Geneva. Parker's powers of endurance were at the time greater than Sumner's, and their friends who saw them then thought Parker more likely to be the survivor. Sumner met again in Paris Montalembert, Villemain, the Mohls, the Circourts, and R. M. Milnes. The Grotes had passed some time in the previous summer at St. Germain en Laye. Mrs. Grote, in a letter to Senior, described a real jolly day, Aug. 3, 1858, in which she took Sumner
