. I think you peculiarly fitted to enjoy travelling. All is novelty and freshness, and with your energy, ardor, and untiring perseverance no information will be left vnattained, and no rational pleasure unsought. You have my best wishes that nothing may occur to mar this enjoyment. Dr. Palfrey wrote, Sept. 25:— You are, I will not say an enviable, but certainly a very fortunate, man; and are thus another illustration of the connection between good luck and good conduct. Governor Everett wrote, May 20, 1839:— I rejoice, my dear Sir, to hear from all quarters, public and private, of your great success abroad. I consider the country as under obligations to you for the favorable impression of our means of education and our institutions generally, which must be produced by the specimen of early scholarship and extraordinary attainment you have exhibited. Take care of your health; stay abroad till your eye is tired of seeing and your ear of hearing, and then come bac

I should not forget to tell you that in the library, where we pass our evenwings, is the immortal picture of Edmund Burke, by Sir Joshua Reynolds; that which has been perpetuated by so many engravings. The artist Osgood has taken a copy of this picture for Governor Everett, which is pronounced very good indeed. I have given you some of my experience in fox-hunting. Change we our story. When I last wrote I had been enjoying Oxford. On my way to Milton I passed four or five days at Cambridge,—deeply interesting and instructive, —during which I saw most of the persons eminent at the university, and visited the various colleges.

All who have read Edward Everett's message As Governor of Massachusetts. about the Maine disturbances are much pleased with it, it compares so finely with the undignified, illiterate, and blustering document of Fairfield. Governor of Maine. When I read the latter, I felt ashamed of my country. By the way, Lord Holland spoke kindly of Governor Everett, whom he called Dr. Everett,— he did not know that he was Governor.

I had a great deal of conversation about George III. and Lord North. Lord Holland confirmed in conversation all that he had written to Sparks, and which has been printed; and further said that he could have furnished much more from the same letters which would have illustrated the bad temper and spirit of the king, but he thought it hardly becoming in a minister of the son of George III. to do more than he had done.

reenleaf wrote, May 17:— I ran my eye rapidly over your article on the North-eastern Boundary in Galignani's Messenger. The impression it gave me was delightful. They ought at least to give you a secretaryship of legation for it. Governor Everett wrote, May 20:— I am greatly indebted for the paper containing your admirable article on the North-eastern Boundary. Hillard wrote, May 24:— Your article does you great credit. . . . Its tone and spirit are just what they ougf Brougham. I have talked with him much about our Maine affair. It shall be discussed! said he, with an oath, when I told him that all we wanted was to have the subject looked into and studied; but I have written two very long letters to Governor Everett on this subject. At the request of General Cass, our minister, I have written a long article in Galignani's Messenger, stating the American side. It was after no little ado that it was admitted. It is the longest article ever published in<

I showed the venerable father my book, and inquired if he had read it. Ahi! non ho tanta scienza, was his reply. Ever affectionately yours. Charles Sumner. P. S. I wish you would show this to Cleveland, Felton, and Longfellow, and tell them to consider it as addressed to each and all. Can you not speak to Governor Everett, and Ticknor, and Prescott, in Crawford's behalf? But I will not say more, for you will understand my wishes, and I leave the whole to your discretion.

He amuses us not a little by his account of the doings and sayings to which he was a party. Mr. Everett has written me of the great kindness of Lady Carlisle and all your house to him. Mr. Webster has been in Boston for a nk more favorably, she says, of my condition when I am more taciturn on this most important subject. Have you read Edward Everett's speech?

and fastidious men in rapt attention. The subject was The Relation of the Poet to his Age; and it was treated with exquisite grace and beautiful thought, refined and elevating, with apt criticism and touching descriptions and allusions. In Edward Everett's great field Hillard has been pronounced master. Old John Quincy Adams, whom I reverence so much for two things,—his high morale and his comprehensive attainments,—said that the oration was, without question, the finest he had ever heard; are almost in deadly feud. Webster is hoping to get back to the bar. He told me a week ago of Lord Aberdeen's reception of he note of last March, on what has been called the right of visit, but which I call the right of inquiry. It seems that Mr. Everett read Webster's note, when Lord Aberdeen made what seems to me—as it seemed to Webster the extraordinary statement that he did not agree with the doctrine put forth by Sir Robert Peel in the House of Commons on this subject. He added that his <

ply provided with spoils from the archives which you searched. Most careful eyes have examined the archives of the Indies, and obtained from them all that was thought to illustrate the histories of Mexico and Peru. Prescott's copies of manuscripts amount to many volumes. His accumulations on the subject of Mexico and Peru ceased long ago. He is now making collections for the great work of his life,—the reign of Philip II. In this he was much aided by Sparks, during his last visit; by Edward Everett, at Florence; by Greene, at Rome; but above all by the learned Gayangos, now Professor of Arabic at Madrid (did you see him there?), who is employed specially to assemble all that he can find in the archives and libraries of Spain illustrative of this important reign. Fame and fortune both descend upon Prescott. Bentley has paid him six hundred and fifty pounds for the Conquest. He refused fifteen thousand dollars for it from the Harpers. They have paid him in cash seventy-five hun
