Longfellow's Life, vol. II. p. 92. The poet in his reply, August 14, regretted the dismantling of that consecrated chamber. I remember all your books as they then looked upon me gently from the shelves. Have you forgotten the verses of Suckling which we once read together? I leave for Armherst on Tuesday, and shall be back on Friday. Let me have a note for you or Fanny. I wish I were not quite so sad as I am disposed to be. Felton says my address is very fine.

Mr. Garrison renewed his criticisms on both points at different times in the Liberator, April 23; June 4, 11, 18; August 6,13. Another non-voting Abolitionist, Edmund Quincy, also repeated them in letters to the Antislavery Standard, which were copied by the Liberator in August, and in the Boston Courier, August 14. The resolution was opposed by William I. Bowditch Mr. Bowditch, in a note to Sumner with reference to Mr. Garrison's course at the meeting, said: Much as I honor and love him, Mr. Garrison's passion sometimes seems to be to attack single individuals rather than the system of slavery; and it frequently happens that his attacks fall on those who sympathize very fully, though not entirely, in his views. and Wendell Phillips.

Advertiser, July 17, 20; August 2, 5, 8, 15, 31; September 5, 8. Atlas, July 1, 22, 24, 26, 27, 28; August 10; September 4, 15, 18, 20; October 14.

Even after the Know Nothing victory in the autumn, the Whig journals, in defending their opposition to a fusion, called the Free Soil leaders unwise, insincere, hypocritical, and unprincipled. Advertiser, November 29; Atlas, November 17. This style of warfare, unworthy as it was, met with a success which it did not deserve. It kept the city Whigs a solid force ag

Blangy, with its beautiful park, where the Abbe St. Pierre was born; then home to dinner at seven o'clock; in the evening the ladies play at billiards. August 13. Another pleasant day.

Sumner dined often with Mr. Chrystie, who observed, as Richard Gordon had observed at Montpellier, his habit of stopping in the street and putting his hand to his back, when quite unconscious that any one saw the movement. He was in Paris for a day, August 14, to witness the emperor's triumphal entry into the city on his return from Italy. He was still gaining strength, and strength which he felt he could rely upon. He wrote, August 16, to his brother: If anybody cares to know how I am doing, you can say better and better, and that I mean to return in the autumn a well man.
