. I have had a pleasant day or two with Prescott at Pepperell, and he has told me of his English pleasures. To John Bigelow, October 4:— Our Free Soil convention was very spirited. The resolutions are pungent, and cover our original ground. On this we shall stand to the end. I rejoice in the rent in New York Whiggery. If the Barnburners and Sewardites were together, there would be a party which would give a new tone to public affairs. To Charles Allen, member of Congress, October 15:— Nothing is clearer to me than this. Our friends should if possible secure the balance of power in the Legislature, so as to influence the choice of senator. Some are sanguine that we can choose one of our men. I doubt this; but by a prudent course, and without any bargain, we can obtain the control of the Senate. We can then at least dictate to the Whigs whom they shall send. But this cannot be done except by thinning the Whig ranks. I fear that the course in Middlesex Opp

towards it. The Whig journals in the country, finding it impossible under such pressure to carry the body of the Whig voters with them, withdrew from the movement, and rallied their partisans for a contest on the old lines. The Springfield Republican, which had zealously advocated the fusion, now gave up the effort as hopeless, but from time to time upbraided the Whig journals and partisans whom it held accountable for the failure,—July 26, 27; August 5, 19, 24, 26; October 24; November 13, 15, 27. This defeat of popular aspirations was a great disappointment to the best people of the State. It kept alive old griefs, and divided into rival and hostile factions those whose duty it was to work together for a great cause. For once Massachusetts failed to hold her place in the leadership of a great movement. The result was that the mass convention held at Worcester July 20, and the nominating convention held there September 7, which Sumner addressed, were, though adopting the name R

think his last is his best. Never have I known any person whose improvement was so palpable. I long to see our noble State a unit at the head of our great battle for civilization. This note, beginning in a glen, I finish at an inn in Elgin, October 15. Afterwards he visited the Duke of Sutherland at Dunrobin Castle, Lord Aberdeen at Haddo House, Sir William Stirling at Keir, the Argylls at Inverary, and James Stirling near Dumbarton. On his return from Scotland he visited Lord Broughamor Inverness; then a drive and ramble to the glen; lunch; then drive up the Mountain,—all with the duchess, four horses and outrider; dinner at eight o'clock; several new-comers,—among others, Mrs. Hay Mackenzie, the mother of Lady Stafford. October 15. Prayers in the morning by the duchess; breakfast; the duchess took me this morning four miles to the steamer; took leave; crossed over to Birkhead; then got a dog-cart to Elgin (nine miles), passing over the heath with Forres in sight, the sce

visits for the day to Mr. and Mrs. Adams at Quincy, and a visit to John M. Forbes at Naushon. Sumner took part in the festivities in honor of the Prince of Wales, who was in Boston in October, being present at the collation at the State House, a musical jubilee at the Music Hall, and a reception at Harvard College, and also being selected by General Bruce as one of the party to accompany the prince to Portland on his day of sailing. 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
