To Mr. Bright, August 17:— I am your debtor for an excellent letter. Meanwhile on both sides of the water affairs have moved rapidly. I am glad that England keeps out of Continen that if they attempted to pass it I should speak till the close of the session, so that nothing else could be done. It was then abandoned. To R. Schleiden, August 17:— What great events are passing in Europe? I rejoice in the prospect of a united Germany. If I had the honor to be a German, that would be my passion. It it will be soon accomplished. I But where are you now I imagine you in some German retreat, which is to you pleasure-house and watch-tower. To F. W.

Mr. Fish, as already seen, anticipated Sumner's full approval, and he received it. Judge Hoar also wrote Sumner the day before it was signed, probably after it had been read in the Cabinet: I think matters with England are going to your mind, and that your speech and our acts will not trouble each other. Sumner wrote to Motley, August 17: I talked over our question with Fish, and advised him strongly to present our case before the meeting of Congress, in length and breadth, with all its aggravations, so as to show our grievance; and at the same time to say that this was done to enable the British government to understand the feelings of our people; that we should rest without any demand of any kind, but that the British government should be invited to take it into candid consideration, to prepare the way for some equ

Mr. Curtis in Harper's Weekly, August 17, reviewed the letter, saying to its author what he had said to him (Mr. Curtis) in connection with his support of Grant: You have taken a tremendous responsibility. God keep your conscience clear! The New York Tribune, July 31, gives an interview with Sumner concerning the letter to the colored citizens, and contains a leader app-roving the letter.
