1 George Ticknor writes to William H. Prescott from Dresden, Feb. 8, 1836: ‘Your remarks about Dr. Channing's book on Slavery bring up the whole subject afresh before me. You cannot think how difficult and often how disagreeable a matter it is to an American travelling in Europe, to answer all the questions that are put to him about it, and hear all the remarks that are made in consequence. . . . One good, and only one that I know of, can come from this state of opinion in Europe: the Southern States must be rebuked by it, and it is better the reproach should come from abroad than from New England and the North’ ( “Life of George Ticknor,” 1.480).
2 Von Holst, “Constitutional History of the United States, from the Administration of Jackson,” pp. 104, 105 (pp. 107, 108, of the German original). The present translation is our own; that of the American edition being a betrayal.
