anguage. Bright wrote to Sumner, Nov. 29, 1861: There is a feeling among our ministers that Mr. Seward is not so friendly in his transactions with them as they could wish. I hope this is not so. Weed, in his semi-official visit to England and France, discovered this prevailing impression concerning Seward, and did his best in private conversation and a letter to the London Times to remove it. Seward's Life, vol. III. pp. 29, 30, 37; Weed's Life, vol. II. pp. 355-361. The Duchess of Sutherland evidently wrote with the same thought her letter to Seward, Dec. 8, 1861. Seward's Life, vol. III. p. 32. Cobden, however, took him less seriously, thinking him a kind of American Thiers or Palmerston or Russell, talking to Bunkum. Morley's Life of Cobden, vol. II. p. 386. The Duke of Argyll, a member of the British cabinet, the only member altogether sympathetic with our cause, wrote to Sumner as early as June 4, 1861:— I write a few lines very earnestly to entreat that you

see the country that I love pronounce the word which will hasten the end of our domestic war, and make any foreign war impossible,—all of which is in her power. Rarely in history has any nation been so situated as to do so much for another nation and for civilization, to say nothing of the infinite profit to herself. I hope I do not write to you too frankly. I should not write so if I had less confidence in your sincerity and goodness. I have been pained to learn that the Duchess of Sutherland, whose kindness to me enabled me to see you whom I already honored much, is still ailing. I hope that her generous nature may be spared yet longer to soften and quicken our social life. I am sure that she will rejoice when slavery, now in arms, is cast down, never to rise again. I think she would be glad to help at this overthrow. The date of your letter (Hawarden) reminds me of a pleasant day which I can never forget. To W. W. Story, Rome, January 1:— A happy New Year to you a

ngratulations came to him from a wide circle,—from companions of his youth, Howe, Longfellow, Greene, Phillips, Lieber, Agassiz, Palfrey, Whittier, the Waterstons, the Lodges, the Wadsworths, Mrs. R. B. Forbes, and Mrs. Charles Francis Adams; from later associates of his public life, Chief-Justice Chase, Hamilton Fish, Governor Morgan, and Mrs. President Lincoln; from friends across the ocean who had kept up a constant interest in his welfare and followed closely his career, the Duchess of Sutherland, the Argylls, the Cranworths, Robert Ingham, the Count of Paris, and the Laugels. From Washington, the diplomatic corps, particularly Baron Gerolt, its dean, saluted him cordially. The congratulations expressed only one regret,—that he had delayed the step so long. At last he was to enter on a life for which he had expressed a longing more than twenty years before; indeed, earlier than that he had failed in a suit in which his whole heart was enlisted. In a letter to Howe, August 16,

cture. Though no one could fill your place in the Senate, yet I confess it would give me, as I believe it would your constituents generally, great satisfaction to see you in the office of Secretary of State, or as minister plenipotentiary to the Court of St. James. In either case, it would be the right man in the right place. But you will not seek the office; it must seek you. Three of Sumner's English friends died at this period,—Lord Cranworth, Lord Wensleydale, and the Duchess of Sutherland. he had become intimate with the two former on his visit to England as a youth, and with the duchess on his two later visits. Writing to the Duchess of Argyll, he referred to the many tombs which had opened for those to whom he had been attached. Among English travellers calling on him in this or the preceding year were John Morley, G. Shaw Lefevre, and Leslie Stephen. From his French acquaintance, M. Chevalier, came the expression of the wish that he would take the mission to France.
