To This Sumner replied August 10. in a note which showed his desire to maintain friendly relations with Winthrop. He stated his disinclination at the beginning to become Winthrop's critic, and his delay in becoming such till Adams had broken ground in the Whig, and Buckinghamarticle Boston Courier, August 13,—Mr. Winthrop's Vote on the War Bill. Sumner, in a reply to Nathan Appleton, August 11, treated at some length the latter's justification of Winthrop's vote on the war bill, contained in a letter to Sumner, August 10.

The Whig journals of the city appealed to the Whigs to keep away from the mass convention and to stand by the Whig organization; and they did their best to revive old animosities by applying the odious epithets to the Free Soilers which for six years had been familiar to the public,—the volume of abuse falling as usual most heavily on Wilson. Advertiser, July 17, 20; August 2, 5, 8, 15, 31; September 5, 8. Atlas, July 1, 22, 24, 26, 27, 28; August 10; September 4, 15, 18, 20; October 14. Journal, June 30; July 19, 22; August 14, 22, 31; September 6, 8, 9. The Atlas (September 8) called Wilson the ambitious and unscrupulous leader of the Free Soilers. Even after the Know Nothing victory in the autumn, the Whig journals, in defending their opposition to a fusion, called the Free Soil leaders unwise, insincere, hypocritical, and unprincipled. Advertiser, November 29; Atlas, November 17. This style of warfare, unworthy as it was, met w

Rode on horseback with Mr. Cobden to the Downs; several of the neighbor squires to dinner. August 7. Mr. Cobden drove me in an open wagon to Chichester (twelve miles), where I was to take the train for Weymouth; visited the cathedral there, where are works of Flaxman and the tomb of Chillingworth; lunched at the house of a cousin of Mr. C. August 10. Left Jersey at half-past 10 o'clock; arrived at Granville about two o'clock; the tide did not allow us to enter the harbor, and we landed on the rocks, going ashore in a small boat; the police came aboard, and with them the secretary of the mayor, who handed me a most hospitable letter from M. de Tocqueville. After an hour in the streets of Granville, a small sea-port and watering-place, took the diligence for Coutances (eighteen miles), where I did not arrive till dark. August 11. Ro

ing, his own family included, whom he would so heartily rejoice to relieve from pain. After a diagnosis lasting three hours, and accompanied with the application of ice and boiling water, he decided that the blows on the head had taken effect by contre-coup in the spine, producing disturbance in the spinal cord. Works, vol. IV. p. 33n. Two letters from the correspondent of the New York Tribune, the first dated June 23, and published July 9, and the second dated July 26, and published August 10, give an account of the treatment, after interviews with the doctor and his patient. In his view the original injury had resulted in an effusion of liquid about the brain, and in a slight degree of congestion,—chiefly, if not wholly, confined to the membrane around the brain, but taking effect by counter-stroke in the spine. To Sumner's instant inquiry as to the remedy, the doctor replied fire; and the patient asking for an immediate application, the moxa was applied that afternoon to the

Sumner contributed articles to the Boston Transcript, October 15 and 16, on the Duke of Kent's visit to Boston in 1794, and on the Prince of Wales and his suite. He was pleased to find his brother George, now in full sympathy with his own views, at last taking part in public work, speaking for the first time in a political campaign. One day he sought Mount Auburn, lately unfamiliar to him, and wrote to William Story, August 10:— Yesterday I was at Mount Auburn, especially to see the statues in the chapel. I had not been there for years. I was pleased with them all; but yours [of Judge Story] seemed to me more beautiful than ever, both as portrait and as art. I doubt if there be a finer statue in existence. The grounds about are well filled with marbles and stones, such as they are; but the chief ornament was the trees and shrubbery, which were beautiful. By the side of your family were flowers showing
