er a little writing or a little sitting in the Senate I feel the weight spreading over my brain; but at least for the present I shall do nothing. I make visits, inspect the improvements of the Capitol, read newspapers, and sit quietly in my room, often much alone; but this is my fate. Hard! very hard! I long to speak! And again, March 17, 1858: I would give one year of life for one week now in which to expose this enormous villany, --the Lecompton constitution. Leaving Washington December 20, 1857, he was absent the greater part of the time for five months, coming to the capital several times at the summons of his colleague to vote on questions concerning Kansas, and leaving as soon as a vote was reached.

Mr. Stirling lent me his carriage and horses to take me to Glasgow, sixteen miles; on the way called and lunched at Erskine House with Lord and Lady Blantyre; met there Charles Howard.

Brougham gave Sumner at this visit a colored print of Edmund Burke as a youth,—a copy of a picture by

He died October 10 of the same year. In the evening dined with Mr. Munroe, the banker; Fellow-passenger in December. 1837. Ante, vol. i. p. 215. afterwards the Theatre Francais, to hear L'ami à la Campagne, a pleasant piece. March 30. Drove with Mr. and Mrs. George B. Emerson Mr. Emerson (1797-1881) was the widely known educator, Ante, vol. II. pp. 158-288; vol. III. p. 2. to the museum of porcelain at Sevres, which was interesting. Dined with them, and then with Mr. Emerson went to the French opera, where La Favorita was played. Of course the show was fine; but I have heard the chief parts sung with more effect in Boston by an Italian company. March 31. Rain and unpleasant weather. Dined with Mr. and Mrs. Greene at their lodgings, beyond the Luxembourg. Received to-day an
