Mrs. Clinton invited me urgently to call and see Judge Spencer,—the old patriarch of the law,— with whom she proposed to spend some time in Albany. Judge Ambrose Spencer married successively two sisters of De Witt Clinton. He died, in 1848, at the age of eighty-three. I accordingly called, and was repaid for my visit. The judge looks exactly like Allston's Jeremiah. Friday morning I left Albany for Saratoga; and here I am, on the evening of that day, in a raw, ill-provided chamber, without a carpet and with a pine table, on which I now write. How are all friends? Bright eyes and fair faces? With love to all my friends, Ever yours, C. S. To George S. Hillard.

Dr. Lieber did his utmost to make his journey agreeable at the time and permanently improving, warmly certifying of his character and acquisitions to continental jurists and savans,—notably Mittermaier and the younger Thibaut, as well as to his English friends. Such letters are keys useful for opening doors; but there, as many by

He spoke in the kindest terms of Mr. Washington Allston, and inquired earnestly after his health and circumstances.

Coleridge and Allston became intimate friends at Rome, between 1804 and 1808. Sumner referred, in his oration of Aug. 27, 1846, to their intimacy at this time. Works. He desired me to convey to him his warm regards, and those of Mrs. Wordsworth and a and uninteresting to them. I ventured to reply that it would be to them and their friends the most interesting part of my letter. I rely upon your conveying to Allston and the Ticknors the kind messages of Wordsworth. Such was Wordsworth. My visit was one of unmingled pleasure, until I rose to depart; then, taking my hand, h
