, Truman Smith, and Norris. The purpose to cut him off from an opportunity to speak during the session was now openly avowed,—Mason of Virginia saying to him personally that he should not speak; Mason said to him, you may speak next term. Sumner replied, I must speak this term. Mason said, , By—you sha'n't; and Sumner replied, I will; and you can't prevent me. Sumner feared after this colloquy that Mason would delay the appropriation bill till the last day of the session. Bradbury of Maine, a Democrat, went to Sumner and asked him to print his speech without delivering it. Schoolcraft, the manager of the Whig campaign for Scott in the House, begged him not to force a vote which would require Seward and other supporters of General Scott to take a position on the Fugitive Slave law. These and some other facts are from an account given by Sumner at a dinner at R. H. Dana, Jr.'s, soon after his return to Boston, and were recorded by Mr. Dana in his journal. and it seemed in a fair

XIII. pp. 189-191), describes the speech and the scene. An ally from an unexpected quarter was found in Houston of Texas, who opposed the bill as sure to stir up agitation and endanger the Union. but the responsibility and leadership in the debate fell on Chase Chase's amendme

ress in the West. The Republican managers of the State,—Thurlow Weed, Simeon Draper, and D. C. Littlejohn,—the general committee of the party as well as local committees, pleaded with him to speak in its leading cities. He was assured by Mr. Littlejohn that his name would bring thirty thousand people to the mass meeting at Owego. Similar applications, pressed with great urgency, were made from Illinois by E. B.
