An edition of one thousand copies, printed in this country, was sent by the Union League Club to Mr. Dudley, United States consul at Liverpool, for distribution among members of Parliament. A French translation of the Address abridged appeared in Paris, and was commended in the Siecle by Henri Martin. It met, naturally enough, with intemperate criticism from the London Times and other journals which were supporting the Confederacy. The tone of newspapers which were in sympathy with our country was deprecatory. Such were the Daily News, the Scotsman, and the Guardian and Examiner of Manchester.

Circourt, Martin, and Cochin were friends of George Sumner, whose death drew from them sympathetic letters to his brother. M. Chevalier wrote July 2, 1865, but his letters were infrequent. There was hardly any public opinion in France, and the action of the government was the ex
