licans, Collamer, Doolittle, Foster, and Sherman withheld their votes. President Lincoln signed the bill on the 28th. Full notes to Sumner's Works (vol. VIII. pp. 403-406, 415-418) state the final proceedings in detail. Sumner wrote to Mrs. Child:— The repeal of all fugitive-slave acts is of immense importance for us abroad; Earl Russell stated in the House of Lords, April 29, 1864, that the retention of this Act had repelled sympathy for the federal cause. but its practical imeasonable objection that his amendment was not germane. He regarded this law, securing equality in the courts, as the most important of all in establishing the manhood and citizenship of the colored people. In the following August he wrote to Mrs. Child: Among all the measures concerning slavery which have prevailed at the late session, I regard as first in practical value the overthrow of the rule excluding colored testimony. For this result I have labored two years. The rate of pay for c

nment by the State, and an affirmative act of Congress recognizing its right to representation. March 8, 1865. Works, vol. IX. p. 340. Lane of Kansas, who was the partisan of the senators seeking admission, referring to Sumner's opposition to the admission of the Louisiana senators, said he had a few days before worn out senators physically, and secured a postponement. Sumner kept out of the debate, and the credentials were referred, but no further action was taken. He wrote to Mrs. L. M. Child, April 2:— I trust that the letter to the emperor of Brazil, with the excellent tract, Mrs. Child's pamphlet, The Right Way the Safe Way. is already far on the way. I gave them to the Brazilian minister here, with the request that he would have the goodness to forward them. I count much upon the enlightened character of the emperor. Of course, slavery must cease everywhere when it ceases among us. Its neck is in our rebellion, which we are now sure to cut. Cuba, Porto Rico, a

ony, who took occasion in letters to him to express their discontent with his apologetic manner in presenting their petition. At the next session he voted and spoke, on the ground of untimeliness, against woman suffrage in the District of Columbia, remarking that suffrage for that sex was one of the great questions of the future, which would be easily settled whenever the women in any considerable proportion insist that it shall be settled. Dec. 13, 1866; Works, vol. XI. pp. 48-51. Mrs. L. M. Child plied him with arguments on the subject. See her Letters, p. 207. He wrote to William Claflin, May 4:— If Massachusetts speaks, it must be for those principles which are essential to the peace and stability of the republic.

P. S. Since writing you this morning I learn that the President tendered the place of Mr. Bancroft to Mr. Grinnell, who refused it. It is said that he will accept the naval agency. But the President avows his determination to remove Mr. Motley. My colleague conversed with him on the subject this morning. The President wished somebody more American; but my colleague thought San Domingo was at the bottom. More American! Where is he? Show him! Of course this is an excuse. To Mrs. L. M. Child, July 7— Your letters are always interesting and encouraging. I feel stronger when I think of two friends so kind and sympathetic. It is painful to me that I am still pursued by controversy. I long for repose, and am now tried as much as ever. On the Chinese, This took place shortly after. was left to do battle alone. On the annexation of the West India islands, I began alone.

gh life I shall cherish for you the liveliest gratitude and the deepest affection. One who had no sympathy with the San Domingo scheme or the methods by which it was being promoted, not finding him at home, left this note in pencil at his door:— Sunday, Feb. 19, 1871. Dear Mr. Sumner,—I called to inquire after your health, and am rejoiced to learn you are better. Serus in coelum redeas. Your friend, J. A. Garfield. Wendell Phillips, who was Sumner's guest, wrote to Lydia Maria Child, New England Magazine, February, 1892, p. 732. March 4, 1871:— I spent two days with Sumner. His illness is some heart disease, probably the remote effect of his old blow. The doctors say the only policy is rest; the more he'll take, the better health, and the better chance of life prolonged. I argued and prayed; so did we all. How would it do for you to drop him one line beseeching the same course? I told him any harm to him would be greater evil than the stealing of all <

ith felons, and rebukes were administered to the proprietors of this celebrated weekly. The Use and Abuse of Caricature, New York Independent, May 9, 1872. Lydia Maria Child, in Boston Journal, July 2, 1872. It is a curious fact that twelve years later the managers, the editor, and the artist were all arrayed against Mr. Blaine, to the President, but should do justice to its author's sincerity, and be ever grateful for his services, entertaining the same sincere affection as before. Lydia Maria Child saw much of justice in his strictures on the President, but dissented from the arraignment as a whole, objecting that he did not look at both sides of the shwas too dark. Whittier thought him unduly severe in the tone and temper of his speech,—a feature which in his judgment diminished its effect; but he as well as Mrs. Child and James Freeman Clarke vindicated in letters to public journals his sincerity and right to be heard.

ment for the present ended. The doctor seemed to be keeping up a practice in both hemispheres, and was in Boston the next September, when he met Sumner there. During his illness he was constantly receiving letters expressing sympathy, and imploring him to rest. They came from friends far and near,—many, indeed most, of whom had not acted with him in the late election. Among the writers were Longfellow, Whittier, O. W. Holmes, Wendell Phillips, Gerrit Smith, Henry Ward Beecher, Lydia Maria Child, Amos A. Lawrence, Sidney Bartlett, Dr. T. W. Parsons, R. H. Dana, Jr., the brothers Bowditch, and others in great number. None were tenderer in their expressions than his former secretaries, now members of the bar, who knew him best. From the colored people in distant States came testimonies of gratitude and devotion, often traced in an illiterate hand, and sometimes with a long list of signers. Wendell Phillips wrote at the beginning of the session from Boston:— December

The artist made a copy in 1877, which is owned by Thomas Mack, of Boston. He also painted the head for Abraham Avery. 11. Bust, by E. A. Brackett; given to Harvard College in 1857. 12. Bust, by M. Milmore; finished late in 1865 (ante, vol. IV. p. 199), and greatly commended at the time by Wendell Phillips, W. M. Hunt, John T. Sargent, F. V. Balch, and Lydia Maria Child (see her Letters, p. 187). The original was placed in the State House, Boston, and the artist's reproduction of it was given by the State of Massachusetts to George William Curtis in recognition of his eulogy on the senator. This copy has been on exhibition at the Metropolitan Art Museum in New York. A picture of the bust is given in Harper's Weekly, June 20, 1874. 13.
