Fashion has set her seal upon Agassiz's lectures on the animal creation, and on glaciers. . . . William Story has published a volume Poems. which would have seemed better if it had not appeared bynd soon after began his Philip II.; of Emerson, who issued a volume of poems early in 1847, and delivered a course of lectures in Boston which Sumner attended; of Agassiz and Hillard, to the lectures of both of whom in 1847 before the Lowell Institute he was a listener,—the former having natural history, and the latter John Milton the historian at his country home at Pepperell. To Longfellow and Prescott Sumner always brought foreign visitors who came to him with letters of introduction. Agassiz came to this country in the autumn of 1846, bearing letters to Sumner from two English friends. This was the beginning of Sumner's intimacy with the celebrated n

So familiar is it to my mind that I can see clearly all its streets, buildings, and promenades, with the swans in the water. Would that I could enjoy a day there again with old friends, and another lecture of Taillandier! Yesterday Agassiz dined with me; we always talk of Martins. Pray tell him how grateful I am for his friendly thought of me. The railway journey from Montpellier to Marseilles, broken by a day at Aries, greatly wearied him. Between Marseilles and Toulon he had while in the diligence another attack of the angina pectoris,—the first he had experienced for more than three months. It came so sharply that he was on the point of asking the driver to stop; but he was shortly relieved, and went on. At Cannes he
