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, and Brazil must do as we do, without our terrible war, I trust. Sumner remained in Washington two months longer. It was, as already seen, his custom to linger there after the close of a session in order to bring up arrears of business and correspondence, and to prosecute studies on questions pending or at hand; but he had a particular purpose now, when projects of reconstruction, in view of the approaching end of the rebellion, were rife. During these weeks he saw much of the President in friendl

I abjure parties. Sumner introduced a resolution of inquiry as to the kidnapping of freedmen on the southern coast for transportation to Cuba and Brazil; and in consequence a statute for punishing it was enacted.

ation in the United States followed by the extinction of slavery everywhere. He wrote, September 8, to Joseph Cooper, Walthamston, England, concerning slavery in Brazil: I send you the letter of Senator Nabuco, of Brazil, on emancipation, forwarded to me by the Brazilian legation, at the request of the senator. In acknowleBrazil, on emancipation, forwarded to me by the Brazilian legation, at the request of the senator. In acknowledging it, I felt it my duty to say that the senator himself did not go far enough; that the longer continuance of slavery is inconsistent with the civilization of the age, besides being essentially wrong, and that it ought to be terminated at once.
