intend to imply that they excluded the summary of the speech from the telegraphic dispatches. The Springfield Republican, August 28, mingled satire and praise in about equal proportion; but it denounced, September 2, without stint, the coarseness of Clemens's remarks. The reason for this reserve was obvious. Finding nothing in the speech which could be the subject of cavil, they would not, by drawing public attention to it, strengthen the position of its author. Of English friends who expressed warmly their approval of the speech, were Alderson and Cresswell among judges; Adolphus, the reporter, now a county judge; W. E. Forster, then a contributor to the Westminster Review on the slavery question; Nassau W. Senior, Joseph Parkes, John Kenyon, George Combe, and the most affectionate of all Sumner's English friends, the Earl of Carlisle. These, as well as other Englishmen, rarely closed their letters without the expression of an earnest desire to see him again in their country.
