utumn of 1846, bearing letters to Sumner from two English friends. This was the beginning of Sumner's intimacy with the celebrated naturalist, which in time became as dear to him as the earlier friendships. Sumner's friendship with his early partner was kept up, and their law offices were still connected, George Griggs took Hillard's office, the outer one, when the latter left for Europe, and afterwards shared it with Henry T. Parker, for many years residing in London, where he died in 1890. Hillard on his return took another room in the same building, No. 4 Court Street. but the bond between them was sorely strained. Hillard, who really loved him, had come under the fascination of the Ticknors; and no family in Boston was so antipathetic to the antislavery cause as this one. As a young man he had allied himself with the advanced opponents of slavery; but genuine as he was in friendship, He had not in him the stuff of which reformers are made. More and more he lapsed into th

later. and on the third day, which was Sunday, attended the religious exercises, which were conducted in one division by Miss D. L. Dix, and in another by Mr. Dwight. Naturally enough, the visiting members were confirmed in their previous impressions,—Sumner and Howe taking one view of what they saw, and Eliot and Dwight the opposite one. Richard Vaux, Mr. Vaux has been for nearly fifty years chairman of the board of inspectors. He was elected almost unanimously a member of Congress in 1890. one of the directors, received the committee, and in 1876 recalled vividly the occasion. He found the visitors, who had come unannounced, at Jones's Hotel. Sumner was anxious for an immediate inspection, so that no preparation could be made, or be thought to have been made, for their reception. They therefore drove at once to the prison, and began their examination. To Mr. Vaux, Eliot and Dwight appeared listless and not at all enterprising; but Sumner's manner was that of one very seri

ever faithful friend; few American women of her time have had so choice a circle of admirers, among whom Everett, Choate, Winthrop, and Bigelow may be named. Mr. Eames, Minister to Venezuela under Pierce, died in 1867, and Sumner was pallbearer at his funeral. Just before his death, he sent to the senator a message of personal affection and of admiration for his career in the Senate. Mrs. Eames (nee Campbell), living in Washington most of the time while Sumner was in the Senate, died in 1890. He found also solace and good cheer in the congenial fellowship of men and women, distinguished for antislavery activities or sympathies, who gathered almost daily in the home of Dr. Bailey of the National Era. Hardly a foreigner of distinction ever came to Washington while Sumner was in the Senate without seeking him. At this session Jacob Bright came, commended by Harriet Martineau; Arthur h. Clough, by John Kenyon; Dr. Charles Eddy, fellow of Oxford, by Macready; but it was not till th

H. Dana, Jr., was the claimant's slave, and gave the order for his rendition, Loring was removed by legislative address in 1858 from the office of Judge of Probate for persisting in holding, in violation of a statute of the State, the two offices of United States commissioner and judge of a State court. President Buchanan, in recognition of his service in the rendition of Burns, promptly appointed him a judge of the United States Court of Claims. He held that office till 1877, and died in 1890.—which was speedily carried into effect by the marshal and his deputies, supported by United States soldiers and marines, and aided by the city police and State militia acting under the mayor's orders, and in the guise of keeping the peace. Seward, while deploring the return of the slave to bondage (Life, vol. II. p. 232), found satisfaction for it in the humiliation it has brought upon Boston and Massachusetts. It is a severe cure for their misconduct in 1850, which betrayed us all thro

Grote, Madame du Quaire, Madame Molh, Mr. and Mrs. Browning, and Mrs. Jameson. He wrote to Longfellow, July 19; My chief solace latterly has been in seeing Mrs. Jameson, whose conversation is clear, instructive, and most friendly, and in the Brownings; all of these have been full of kindness for me, and I like them all very much. In August he passed a day with the Grotes at St. Germain. Among French friends who came to him or communicated their interest were Auguste Carlier, He died in 1890, aged 87; author of La Republique Americaine.
