Dwight did not respond to the appeal. In the summer Sumner contributed several articles to a newspaper on prison discipline, chiefly in support of the views he had maintained in the debate. Boston Advertiser, July 1 9, 22, 27, and 29. Those in that journal of June 29 and July 8 may, or may not, be his. Late in the year 1847 Mr. Gray's pamphlet on Prison Discipline in America was published.

Sumner replied under the signature of X in the Christian Register, July 13 and Aug. 3, 1850, to a writer in the same newspaper, June 29 and July 27, signing R, and supposed by Sumner to be Ticknor. The point of controversy in the Register was as to Webster's and Mann's statements of the requirement of a trial by jury under the Constitution in the case of persons claimed as slaves.

They say they are daily tormented about your silence by the Whigs all over the State, and many of them think you will not speak at all. John Jay wrote to him, July 5, a letter from New York, which reviewed at length the situation from a personal as well as public point of view, and enforced the vital importance of not allowing the session to close

The mercantile press of Boston was obliged at last to yield to the public demand for his speeches, hitherto accessible only through the Free Soil and the New York newspapers and pamphlet editions; but while giving them to their readers, they said more in the way of criticism upon his construction of his official oath than in commendation of what he had done to mainta
