g machine. This last patent cause was on trial for a week, and ended in a disagreement of the jury. B. F. Hallett was associated with Sumner as plaintiff's counsel, and Henry B. Stanton and Horace E. Smith were for the defence. According to Mr. Stanton, Sumner shone in the hard fight. Tills is his only known case before a jury at this period. His last appearance in court was when he argued in the Supreme Court of the State in behalf of a trustee's answer in a trustee process. Rice v. Brown, 9 Cushing Reports, vol. IX. p. 308. He appeared for his friend, F. W. Bird, before a legislative committee in relation to the route of the Norfolk County Railroad. He had a fair share of office business; and among clients to whom he rendered such service were C. F. Adams and A. McPhail. His briefs in the patent cases, still preserved, show careful preparation both as to the law and the facts, and a capacity to deal with this difficult and subtle branch of the law beyond what could be exp

e upon our existing political organizations, that the moral element involved in this question is too serious to be made any further or any longer subordinate to the political exigencies arising out of it. Choate's answer is given in his Life, by Brown (p. 291), in which, while recommending opposition to the bill, he expressed solicitude lest Mr. Everett should be drawn into a position which would impair his large prospects,—an allusion to the latter's candidacy for the Presidency. Everett, itwas thought at the time to enter largely into his decision to surrender a post which he had recently taken with high expectations. Choate noted Everett's desponding views at this time, and the turning of his personal hopes away from politics. Brown's Life of Choate, p. 297. He was not broken in health, for his subsequent life was full of activity, comprehending long journeys in the delivery of his oration on Washington, and the production of addresses and papers which fill a large share of

Commodore Morris got between me and the judge; Governor Brown of Mississippi, who believes slavery divine, on my left. In the course of our conversation Curtis said that he had not voted since he had been a judge, and hs, p. 1357; Iverson's, p. 1364; Foster's, p. 1356. Brooks afterwards said in his loose way that he desisted only when he had punished Sumner to his satisfaction. (Brown's testimony, Globe, p. 1367.) But according to the evidence he desisted when pinioned by Murray. Morgan coming, on the other hand, through the open space in front he takes a pretty long trot on horseback every forenoon, and a walk in the afternoon, and sleeps well. Still, I fear he has a long and weary road before him. John Brown's call on the senator in February, 1857, is described by an eye-witness, James Freeman Clarke, in his Memorial and Biographical Sketches, pp. 101, 102. Sumner's

was shared by eminent physicians, so far as the application of fire was concerned. Even Dr. Hayward, who advised with some qualifications the treatment, afterwards questioned its efficacy. He preferred at the time a milder remedy than fire. Dr. Brown-Sequard himself, so far as known, never resorted to it again. It is rejected generally by the medical profession, and is hardly resorted to this side of Japan. One lacking Sumner's good constitution and determined spirit could not have borne th which I cherish the memory of your husband. When Sumner arrived in Boston he was grieved not to find his friend Dr. Howe, who had gone to Canada to avoid being reached by any process of the United States. The doctor had been a friend of John Brown, and had taken an interest in some of his plans, though not implicated in his last enterprise at Harper's Ferry. He had left home, partly under advice from Montgomery Blair, who thought it unsafe for him to remain where the process of the fede

The investigation by Mason's committee of John Brown's invasion of Virginia drew him into debate March 12, 1860, when he spoke against the commitment of Thaddeus Hyatt for contempt in refusing to answer certain qgeneral issue at this time by the bolder attitude of Southern members of Congress during the session,—like Hammond of South Carolina, Hunter and Mason of Virginia, Brown and Jefferson Davis of Mississippi,—who had not hesitated to defend the institution as a normal condition of society, beneficial to both races, even ennobling to tte in the June following, and his address at Cooper Institute the next month, gave assurance of established vitality and endurance. He wrote, August 6, 1860, to Dr. Brown-Sequard:— The speech in the Senate will be evidence to you of the completeness of my convalescence. Besides the delivery, which occupied between four and <
