Swiftly following the Theodore L. Cuyler in the Evangelist, Lib. 35: 70). a visit was paid to the grave of April 15. Calhoun, the party consisting of Messrs. Beecher, Garrison, Thompson, Tilton, and others. One of theseessive scenes I have witnessed was Lib. 35.76. Wm. Lloyd Garrison standing at the grave of John C. Calhoun.

At home, he saved his wife and the one maid-of-all-work the heavier burdens of lifting and carrying, taking water and wood to the upper stories of the house, attending to the furnace till his children could relieve him, and the like. Had he a guest, he would black his shoes for him with the same readiness that he would show him about the city. In short, he performed as a part of his religion those menial services which Calhoun, in a famous conversation Diary of J. Q. Adams, 5.10. with J. Q.
