in this country. VI. * personal Memoirs of U. S Grant. Two volumes. (New York, 1885-86: Charles L. Webster & Co.; Century Company, 1895.) This great book has been already spoken of in the text. With it should be read the Memoirs of Sherman and Sheridan. They make a trilogy that will outlast any criticism. VII. Grant in peace. By Adam Badeau. (Hartford, Conn., 1887: S. S. Scranton & Co.) Contains much that is trivial, but much that is valuable. VIII. Historical essays. By Henry Adams. The four last essays. (New York, 1891: Charles Scribner's Sons.) There is no better summary of pertinent political issues. IX. Mr. Fish and the Alabama claims. By J. C. B. Davis. (Boston and New York, 1893: Houghton, Mifflin & Co.) Another excellent and absorbing summary. X. the story of the Civil War. By John Codman Ropes. (New York, 1894-98: G. P. Putnam's Sons.) Unfinished. The reader may always trust Mr. Ropes' information, but not always his judgment. XI. History of

easily conquered by meekness, and perseverance, and prayer. Sirs, the prejudices of the North are stronger than those of the South;—they bristle, like so many bayonets, around the slaves;—they forge and rivet the chains of the nation. Conquer them, and the victory is won. The enemies of emancipation take courage from our criminal timidity. They have justly stigmatized us, even on the floor of Congress, with the most contemptuous epithets. We are (they say) their white slaves, In Henry Adams's Life of John Randolph we read (p. 281): On another occasion, he [Randolph] is reported as saying of the people of the North, We do not govern them by our black slaves, but by their own white slaves. afraid of our own shadows, who have been driven back to the wall again and again; who stand trembling under their whips; who turn pale, retreat, and surrender, at a talismanic threat to dissolve the Union. . . .

ests but little of that personal quality to which he owes his significance as an interpreter of America to the Old World. This son of a narrow, hard, Scotch dealer in cutlery, this drifter about town when New York was only a big slovenly village, this light-hearted scribbler of satire and sentiment, was a gentleman born. His boyhood and youth were passed in that period of Post-Revolutionary reaction which exhibits the United States in some of its most unlovely aspects. Historians like Henry Adams and McMaster have painted in detail the low estate of education, religion, and art as the new century began. The bitter feeling of the nascent nation toward Great Britain was intensified by the War of 1812. The Napoleonic Wars had threatened to break the last threads of our friendship for France, and suspicion of the Holy Alliance led to an era of national selfassertion of which the Monroe Doctrine was only one expression. The raw Jacksonism of the West seemed to be gaining upon the ol

He dispensed a liberal hospitality; and in his house at Washington, as well as at Boston and on the seashore, Sumner was always welcome to lodge or dine. The intimacy which he had enjoyed with the family of Mr. Adams, already Minister to England, was now transferred to Mr. Hooper's, at whose house he dined at least once or twice a week from 1861 to 1874. Later in these pages it will become necessary to refer to a near connection between the two friends.
