d end, on the general import of the project. City document, No. 37, 1852. Mr. Ticknor's part, p. 9 to p. 21. From this moment Mr. Ticknor felt that he had assumed a great responsibility, and, while he never met with obstacles raised by Mr. Everett, who was loyal throughout, yet he was led, thenceforward, to make many exertions, and to do much laborious, disinterested work, both here and in Europe, which would not otherwise have been incumbent on him. He spent more than a year abroad, in 1856-57, at his own expense, for the express purpose of conferring with Mr. Bates, establishing agencies, and purchasing books for the Library.

But it is, in my humble judgment, as certain as anything future can be. Nor will one square mile belonging now to the territory of tnor and Mrs. Twisleton. the average of content and happiness in the family is, I think, as great as it ever was. As to the country, we go on much after the fashion you understand so well from autopsy. . . . . When we talked about our affairs in 1856-57, I easily foresaw that Buchanan would be chosen; that this would lead to no trouble with the governments of Europe, that Walker would fail as a flibustero, and that nothing could prevent Kansas from being a free State. But I cannot foresee now
