f march speech. Theodore Parker, failing to find Sumner at his office, wrote, April 26: You told me once that you were in morals, not in politics. Now I hope you will show that you are still in morals although in politics. I hope you will be the senator with at conscience. Seward wrote: I take new courage in the cause of political truth and justice when I see a senator coming from Massachusetts imbued with the uncompromising devotion to freedom and humanity of John Quincy Adams. Richard S. Storrs, Jr., wrote from Brooklyn: I am sure that there are many thousands of hearts outside of Massachusetts which have thrilled with deep and unexpected happiness at this most honorable and auspicious event.

Explanations were made for him in newspaper articles,—Dedham Gazette, Dec. 4, 1852, by E. L. Pierce, and Boston Commonwealth, Dec. 2, 1852. He wrote to the Earl of Carlisle, Nov. 9, 1852:— I will say that nobody but Mr. Webster could have made the Fugitive Slave bill in any degree tolerable at the North, and he is now dead.

It has given character and position, brought to his support the mass of the clergy of his State. He had already among them many friends and admirers, who recognized in his arguments for peace and freedom the moral elevation of his aims. Such were Woods and Storrs, the seniors of those names, among Trinitarians; and A. P. Peabody, Livermore, Francis, and Clarke, among Unitarians.
