1 Recommended by his Scotch friend, Brown, and by John Wilks. The latter, an active writer in his day, seems to have been much attracted to Sumner; and at Paris they were often together. Wilks bade Sumner good-by, as he left for London, in a note closing thus: ‘So now a pleasant voyage to you; for you are a right good sample of a thoroughly good-hearted, hard-headed, able, well-informed American.’ Wilks soon after returned to London, where he became editor of the ‘Church and State Gazette,’ and died in 1844 or 1845. He was the grandson of a Methodist clergyman, and son of John Wilks, of Finsbury Square, M. P. for Boston.
