1 Julian's ‘Life of Giddings,’ p. 258, and Buell's ‘Sketch of Giddings,’ p. 186. He was omitted from the committee appointed to accompany the remains of Ex-President Adams to Massachusetts, although he was Mr. Adams's nearest friend in Congress, and was allied to him, as no other member was, by identity of opinions.
3 Giddings, after a service of twenty years, failed, under strange conditions, to receive a renomination from a constituency whose confidence and gratitude he still retained. Sumner wrote to him, Feb. 1, 1859, from Montpellier, France, a letter which is printed in Giddings's ‘Life’ by Julian, pp. 357, 358. It is full of affection and grateful appreciation. Their correspondence while Giddings was consul-general at Montreal. where he died May 27, 1864, will be found in the same volume, pp. 384-394. One of Giddings's last letters written to others than his family was to Sumner.
