Edward L. Pierce, Memoir and letters of Charles Sumner: volume 3, chapter 14 (search)
ds repeated at the Sorbonne. Sumner attended the lectures of Taillandier and other professors in the Salles des Lettres, occupying a privileged seat at the front. For descriptions of Sumner's life at Montpellier see his letters, Jan. 24 and 25, 1859, printed in Longfellow's Life, vol. III. pp. 55-59. M. Abauzit, who met Sumner at Montpellier, writes: Mr. Sumner read all the memoirs and correspondence relating to the eighteenth century, particularly the letters of D'Alembert, Diderot, La Haeen Longfellow and Dr. Howe; his engravings are in the Art Museum of Boston; and his books, autographs, and old manuscripts in the Library of Harvard College. These purchases and the expenses of his illness absorbed all his income. He wrote, Jan. 25, 1859, to Howe, who had charge of his finances: A few years ago I had a scheme of prudence and of economy which would have made me at this time master of ten thousand dollars. Important as this is to me at my time of life, I must renounce it for th
dred sailors and marines, all under the command of the veteran and gallant Shubrick. Soon after the arrival of the expedition at Montevideo, Commissioner Bowlin and Commodore Shubrick proceeded (30th December, 1858) to ascend the rivers to Asuncion in the steamer Fulton, accompanied by the Water Witch. Meanwhile the remaining vessels rendezvoused in the Parana, near Rosario, a position from which they could act promptly, in case of need. The commissioner arrived at Asuncion on the 25th January, 1859, and left it on the 10th February. Within this brief period he had ably and successfully accomplished all the objects of his mission. In addition to ample apologies, he obtained from President Lopez the payment of $10,000 for the family of the seaman (Chaney) who had been killed in the attack on the Water Witch, and also concluded satisfactory treaties of indemnity and of navigation and commerce with the Paraguayan Government.

The writings of John Greenleaf Whittier, Volume 4. (ed. John Greenleaf Whittier), Personal Poems (search)
For me shall gentler notes suffice,— The valley-song of bird and stream; The pastoral bleat, the drone of bees, The flail-beat chiming far away, The cattle-low, at shut of day, The voice of God in leaf and breeze! Then lend thy hand, my wiser friend, And help me to the vales below, (In truth, I have not far to go,) Where sweet with flowers the fields extend. 1858. The memory of Burns. Read at the Boston celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, 25th 1st mo., 1859. In my absence these lines were read by Ralph Waldo Emerson. How sweetly come the holy psalms From saints and martyrs down, The waving of triumphal palms Above the thorny crown! The choral praise, the chanted prayers From harps by angels strung, The hunted Cameron's mountain airs, The hymns that Luther sung! Yet, jarring not the heavenly notes, The sounds of earth are heard, As through the open minster floats The song of breeze and bird! Not less the wonder of the sky That daisies
