, it was so cordial and strong in joy. Nathaniel Hawthorne and his Wife. By Julian Hawthorne. Vol. II. p. 12. Sumner came into personal relations with John Quincy Adams in 1845, and from that year met him from time to time at his home in Quincy, or at his son's house in Boston. The Ex-President was far from being a Peace man; but he was attracted by the boldness of Sumner's Fourth of July oration, and by its elevation of thought. His tribute to Sumner's Phi beta Kappa address, and hisime until the winter of 1860– 1861 they were in very friendly relations of social and political intercourse. Sumner often dined at Mr. Adams's in Mt. Vernon Street, or took supper with him on Saturday or Sunday evenings, and also visited him at Quincy. Their association in the early period from 1846 to 1848 had, it is fair to presume, a salutary influence on Sumner, giving a more practical direction to his aims, and tempering his disposition to overlook, in his zeal for noble causes, the limi

a process for the rescue of the negro. The capture was unlawful; the pursuing captain was a volunteer in a service which was odious to all men of honorable sentiments; and the jurisdiction and process of the State had been treated with contempt. The circumstances certainly invited an expression of public indignation. John A. Andrew, a young lawyer, was active in making the preliminary arrangements for the meeting. Sumner and Dr. Howe visited Ex-President John Quincy Adams at his home in Quincy, and requested him to preside. J. Q. Adams's Diary, vol. XII. pp. 272-275. He was then seventy-nine years of age, and had just returned from Washington after a long session of Congress, which had been extended into the severe heat of summer. He hesitated, on account of his feeble condition, to accept; and it remained doubtful until the day of the meeting whether he would be able to be present. His strong will, and an interval of strength which fortunately came to him, gave the people

iversary of the latter's celebrated speech. Charles Allen wrote: Marshfield has living principles which she would not bury in the tomb of her hero. All honor to her! Adams refused to be a candidate for any town but his own, and was defeated in Quincy by the refusal of the Irish voters to support him. No town was disposed to adopt Palfrey, probably because of his aversion to Democrats and his want of sympathy in previous years with the coalition. The exclusion of Adams and Palfrey from the corom the Start, A letter to the New York Evening Post, Nov. 7, 1853, signed Essex, reviewed the political record of Palfrey and Adams. and undertook to explain the personal reasons for their action. and the latter in an address, November 5, at Quincy. They drew away a few of their old friends from its support; but their influence was chiefly felt in the new spirit and vigor which they gave to its opponents. The Whigs at once put forth every effort to carry the State. They sent speakers to

A special police force was on hand to prevent disturbance. It was his first public appearance in that city, and nothing could exceed his welcome as expressed in a packed house and most enthusiastic reception. Among pleasant incidents of the summer and autumn were visits for the day to Mr. and Mrs. Adams at Quincy, and a visit to John M. Forbes at Naushon. Sumner took part in the festivities in honor of the Prince of Wales, who was in Boston in October, being present at the collation at the State House, a musical jubilee at the Music Hall, and a reception at Harvard College, and also being selected by General Bruce as one of the party to accompany the prince to Portland on his day of sailing. Sumner contributed articles to the Boston Transcript, October 15 and 16, on the Duke of Kent's visit to Bo
