1 Parke Godwin to Sumner, September 18 (manuscript) New York Evening Post, September 26. That journal contended that more States were needed to ratify the thirteenth Constitutional amendment, and Sumner replied that it had already been ratified by a quorum of States. New York Evening Post, September 29, Works, vol. IX. pp. 489-492.
2 Godwin's ‘Life of Bryant,’ vol. II. pp. 238-242. The ‘Evening Post,’ March 1, 1866, contains a rather cynical notice of Sumner's speech of February 5 and 6, 1866. While retaining its Republican connection, it regarded (November 6, 7, and 8, 1867) the reconstruction measures of Congress, except the fourteenth amendment, as ‘needless, violent, unstatesmanlike, and fanatical.’
3 March 2; June 3, 19, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29. The Cincinnati Commercial printed eleven years later letters found in Andrew Johnson's office at Greenville, Tenn., after his death, which approved his policy of reconstruction at the outset. Among them were letters and telegrams from George Bancroft, James Gordon Bennett, Henry J. Raymond, Simon Cameron, and W. H. Seward.
5 June 14, 15. 20, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29; July 8, 10,11, 31; August 1, 26; September 18, 20, 30: October 7, 19.
6 George L. Stearns, of Massachusetts, distinguished for his services for the colored people, who had while raising negro troops in Tennessee become acquainted with Mr. Johnson, was at this time his apologist. New York Tribune, October 23.
