ond visit to Washington, where through the kindness of friends a pleasant place was found in which I repeated these lectures, having among my hearers some of the chief notabilities then present at the capital.
In my journal of this time, never published, I find the following account of a day in Washington:—
To the White House, to see Carpenter's picture of the President reading the emancipation proclamation to his Cabinet.
An interesting subject for a picture.
The heads of Lincoln, Stanton, and Seward nearly finished, and good portraits.
Dressed for dinner at Mrs. Eames's, where Secretary Chase and Senator Sumner were expected.
Mr. Chase is a stately man, very fine looking and rather imposing.
I sat by him at dinner; he was very pleasant.
After dinner came Mrs. Douglas in her carriage, to take me to my reading.
Senator Foster and Mr. Chase announced their intention of going to hear me. Mr. Chase conducted me to Mrs. Douglas's carriage, promising to follow.
