Vaughan, of Kentucky, where also were Sumner, Richard Hildreth, C. F. Adams, J. A. Andrew, and John W. Browne. Longfellow wrote in his diary, Nov. 16, 1849: Dined at Howe's. A very pleasant dinner.

He had made no preparation, and in taking a public part at the meeting yielded to pressure from Andrew. In the course of his remarks, he said:— And now, Mr. President, what is the duty of Mth, R. W.

The Free Soil State convention met at Tremont Temple in Boston, September 6. Sumner was present at the preliminary caucus in that city, speaking briefly,lity; and it is interesting to observe how many of them came to the front before or during the Civil War,—Sumner, Adams, Wilson, Burlingame, Dana, E. R. Hoar, and Andrew. Among the younger Free Soilers were George F. Hoar, Henry L. Pierce, John A. Kasson, and Marcus Morton, Jr, the last of whom became chief-justice of the Supremethe Republicans, who twelve years later made him President. By a curious turn of politics, the men whom he came to Massachusetts to oppose—Sumner, Adams, Wilson, Andrew, Dana, and Burhngame—became his supporters in the election of 1860 and during his Presidency; while the foremost of the Whig leaders whom he came to assist were o<

Published late in May. John A. Andrew wrote, June 2, of Winthrop's reference to Sumner's silence: This retreating arrow from Winthrop can do you no harm, and it needs no attention. Winthrop's sharp reflections at this time were prompted by Sumner's including in a recent edition grity of his purpose, and if questioning the wisdom of his delay were content to leave the decision with him; but their intimate knowledge of his character and their private information could not reach the mass of earnest men in his party. John A. Andrew, writing June 2 in reference to Mr. Winthrop's taunt, said:— When by the circumstances a speech is an act for liberty, then I trust that you will make it. But when by speaking you feel that you would only drown your own testimony by the

Would it not be better to give up all idea of coming back at this session, so that it will be understood by all that you will not be here till December next? It was feared at the time that he might, from unwillingness to leave his seat vacant, resign it; but many protests came against any such movement. John A. Andrew wrote, December 18: I hope that nothing will induce you to resign the senatorship, even for a week. Sit in your seat if you can. If you can't, let it be vacant; that is my idea about the case. Sumner went to Washington very late in the session, which was to end March 4, 1857.

Bemis wrote in his journal an account of a conversation in Sumner's room, with Motley and Parker present, when Sumner spoke of John A. Andrew, hoping he would soon be governor of Massachusetts, and recalling Judge Peleg Sprague's tribute to his ability as a lawyer. This was Sumner's last intercourse with Parker, whom he accompanied, June 24, to the railway station as the latter left Paris for Geneva. Parker's powers of endurance were at the time greater than Sumner's, and their friends who saw them then thought Parker more likely to be the survivor.
