Three years later he took ground against placing in the Capitol any picture of a victory in battle with our own fellow-citizens. Feb. 27, 1865. Works, vol. IX. pp. 333-335. This, too, encountered the opposition of his colleague as well as that of Howe of Wisconsin, but his action was approved by General Robert Anderson; and again, as before, military authority was with him, and not with his civilian critics. In harmony with his action on these points was his treatment of the question of retaliation, to be referred to hereafter. Caleb Cushing shor

d it April 12—his last official act. They visited him on board the River Queen, where there was a pleasant conversation, in which the President indicated the places where the Confederate commissioners sat in the saloon of the steamer at the Hampton Roads conference, February 3, and with maps before him explained General Grant's present movements. The party, leaving Mr. Lincoln, went on to Richmond that afternoon (Thursday), and drove with an escort of cavalry to noted places—among them the capitol, where Sumner sought for the ancient archives, and inquired about certain public men, particularly Hunter, formerly senator. The incident is related that Sumner's having obtained at Richmond the gavel of the Confederate Congress, which he proposed to give to Stanton, Mr. Lincoln said to Speaker Colfax that he ought to have it, adding, Tell him [Sumner] from me to hand it over. This was the President's last pleasantry before going to the play on the fatal night. Boston Journal, April 15

M. for dinner, and he took food only at these meals. At first he had a housekeeper: but this arrangement not working satisfactorily, he carried on the house afterwards only with servants, aided in daily needs as well as emergencies by Mr. Wormley. He seldom dined alone, and was in the habit of bringing from the Capitol one or two friends to take pot-luck with him,—as Ben Perley Poore, the journalist, or Henry L. Pierce, an old friend who entered the House in 1873, or any constituent who happened to be in Washington. Sumner had most cordial relations with his secretaries; they were clerks of the foreign relations committee while he was chairman, being, according to the practice, designated by him. As early as 1855, A. B. Johnson assisted him in clerical and kindred services, and though engaged afterward

There was a similar recognition of the occasion in many cities and towns of New England. The trains brought from the country throngs of citizens who passed through the State House or stood in mass in the neighborhood. Never in Boston, noted for good taste, never perhaps in the country, had there been an equal display of floral emblems like those which decorated the capitol where the remains lay instate, and King's Chapel where the last rites were performed. Hayti, whose minister had come from Washington on the errand, sent her offering in gratitude for the senator's early espousal of her right to a place among nations, and for his chivalrous maintenance of her cause at a later period. On the afternoon of Monday the body was removed to the church where the Sumner family had worshipped. A dense mass of people stood about the State House, in the vacant spaces
