society. He was in the freshness and vigor of his powers; He had become familiar with the platform; and it is remembered that as he handled one adversary after another, he seemed conscious of his strength. The other speakers were without attractions of style and manner, and, except Mr. Gray and Dr. Howe, knew very little of the subject. The meetings were prolonged during eight evenings, from half-past 7 till nearly or quite eleven, and sometimes till nearly midnight. May 28. June 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, and 23. Sumner opened the debate on the first evening, occupying an hour and a half, leaving the rest of the time to three speakers who replied. A report of his speech is printed in the Boston Courier, June 1, 1847. The speech is like his later one, though going more into details on some points, and being quite severe on the meagre quality of the Society's reports, particularly the last one, which he thought a small month's work. Between its flimsy covers is all that we have

s, and volunteered his support of Mason's fugitive-slave bill, with all its provisions, to the fullest extent. As the speech was first published, he pledged himself to support the bill with Butler's amendment; but in a revision the relative pronoun which was transferred so that he appeared to pledge himself to support it only as amended by himself. The transfer of the relative pronoun led to a controversy in the newspapers,——--Boston Courier, May 6, 1850 Advertiser, May 7; Atlas, May 8 and 9; Moses Stuart's Conscience and the Constitution, p. 67. He intimated his purpose to offer some amendments which would qualify its harshness, and later proposed one securing to the alleged fugitive a trial by jury; but his speeches and letters of subsequent date make it clear that the bill unamended would have received his vote. In a letter, May 15, 1850 (Webster's Works, vol. VI. p. 557), he treated the State personal liberty laws as an insuperable difficulty in the way of a jury trial. H

by a toast to the Union, he declared it to be a necessity, not merely constitutional, but social, commercial, geographical, historical; to be preserved, not by compromise with slavery, but by rigid adherence to the principles of liberty and justice; and he insisted on the duty of every man under all discouragements to testify and act against slavery. This speech is not found in Sumner's Works, but the speeches at the dinner, including his, are printed in the Boston Commonwealth, May 6, 7, 9. Seward wrote, May 19:— I read your speech at the Hale dinner with real admiration, as I did Hale's with delight, and the whole with sincere satisfaction. We are on the rising tide again, and the day of apology for principles of political justice draws to a close. Sumner declined in May an invitation to deliver an address before the Story Association, composed of past and present members of the Law School at Cambridge, an appointment which Mr. Choate filled two years before.

Pray stop and spend a week, or some days or a (lay with us. Mrs. Seward would command, Mrs. Worden enjoins, and I solicit that pleasure Such was the interest in the address and in the orator which prevailed in New York city that under the pressure of the public demand he gave it in the Metropolitan Theatre, May 9, and repeated it in Niblo's Theatre and in Brooklyn. He had not spoken before in the metropolis, and the halls where he spoke were crowded with enthusiastic audiences. He was introduced on the different evenings by William Jay, Henry Ward Beecher, and Joseph Blunt. An invitation to speak in Philadelphia was pressed on him, but he declined it. Similar invitations came during the summer from most of the free States. The address was warmly praised in the newspapers, and it was printed in fu

and living by turns in Germany and France, who in his writings gave vivid pictures of life in his native country. who told me that serfdom would be abolished there within ten years; that the emperor insisted upon it; that nobody vindicated it; that the only question was how to arrange the proprietary interests involved; and that a commission is now occupied with the question. I told him that this was the greatest news I had heard since leaving home. The information proved to be true. May 9. Visited the Imperial Library, confining myself to-day to the collection of engravings, manuscripts, and charts. In the latter department I was kindly received by M. Jobart, one of the old Egyptian expedition; also saw a gentleman who claimed to have first invented the system of printing catalogues by stereotyped plates of individual titles, which Mr. Jewett Charles C.
