slave at the Navy Yard, but Commodore Downes had refused. Sims, therefore, like Shadrach, was kept at the Court-House. Was it possible to get him out? There was on Tuesday evening a crowded meeting at Tremont Temple, at which Horace Mann presided. I hoped strongly that some result might come from this meeting, and made a vehement speech there myself, which, as Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe honored me by saying, was bringing the community to the verge of revolution, when a lawyer named Charles Mayo Ellis protested against its tone, and threw cold water upon all action. It was evident that if anything was done, it must be done by a very few. I looked round, during the meeting, for a band of twenty-five men from Marlborough, who had seemed to me to show more fighting quality than the rest, but they had probably gone home. Under this conviction half a dozen of us formed the following plan. The room where Sims was confined, being safe by reason of its height from the ground, had no gra

the coast in readiness to rescue slaves from incoming vessels or to kidnap their pursuers. A crowded meeting was held in Tremont Temple, where Higginson made a vehement speech urging instant action. To this advice a subsequent speaker, Charles Mayo Ellis, strongly objected. Apropos of these speeches, Mr. Higginson's sister-in-law, Miss Barbara Channing, wrote:— I went to see Anne Phillips [Mrs. Wendell Phillips], who is enthusiastic about W. [Wentworth] —she said her hopes of Sims' rce spellbound; it was more remarkable for what it kept back and hinted at than what it said; there was a fire in the eye that made him tremble. W. Phillips said that Dr. Howe said we were on the eve of a revolution with that speech—nothing but Ellis's speech saved us. Yet it was very short and I was conscious of no such effects. In fact I walked in a dream all that week, but it tested me to the utmost . . . . Meetings where every one present had to be identified and every window closed; <
