Anthony was friendly to Sumnerretention, as Sherman and Morrill proved to be. Howe had, however, as it appeared, taken a position against Sumner. Howe had been Sumner's eulogist, speaking of him in the Senate, Jan. 26, 1866 (Cohe removal were Nye.

erased. which I have received from individuals. I strike out the word ingratitude, for I have always acted on a sense of duty, and I deserve no gratitude on that account; but I do deserve justice. And never in anything in my life did I act more under an irresistible sense of duty than in that opposition to the San Domingo business, which brought on me the anger of the Presidential rings, with the strange cooperation of Massachusetts men calling themselves my friends. A reference to Dr. S. G. Howe. The slippers have been a comfort and a pride during this voyage. I have worn them in the cabin and on deck. Thank your wife again for this kind souvenir. Good-by! On Saturday, the eleventh day of the voyage, suffering during most of it as he always suffered from the sea, he arrived at Liverpool. Here he was met by Mr. Felt, the secretary of the American Club, and taken to the club-house; also to St. George's Hall and the Free Library, where he recognized in the portraits t

ve thousand petitioners, the number of whom could have been easily increased many fold. Among them were the names of those in the State most distinguished for learning, public spirit, philanthropy, devotion to the Antislavery cause, and courage as soldiers in the Civil War. The annals of the State contain no paper of such import in its list of names as this one now addressed to the Legislature. Among the signers were Whittier, Longfellow, Holmes, Agassiz, R. H. Dana, Jr., J. T. Fields, S. G. Howe, George S. Hillard, Charles W. Eliot, J. Ingersoll Bowditch, W. Endicott, Jr., Franklin Haven, Amos A. Lawrence, Wendell Phillips, A. H. Rice, T. W. Higginson, William Claflin, Henry L. Pierce, and Mr. Wilson, Vice-President elect. Boston Journal, Feb. 22, 1873. Scholars, merchants, politicians, and veteran Antislavery leaders gladly gave their names to it.

Boutwell and confirmed by a majority of one, which was obtained only after considerable pressure on the council. The Massachusetts men, on whom Sumner most relied for advice, were all against Mr. Cushing's appointment,—among them F. W. Bird, Dr. S. G. Howe, Wendell Phillips, and George F. Hoar, who signified in letters to the senator their earnest opposition to a confirmation. One Massachusetts lawyer, P. W. Chandler, alone took a different view. Sumner, as soon as the nomination was made, Candler, being in the Senate chamber on Monday, casually mentioned to Sumner the proposed dinner; but finding how he felt about it Mr. Candler assured him that it should be given up, and at once sent a telegram to Boston to have it stopped. Dr. S. G. Howe had taken the leading part in proposing and arranging this compliment to Baez. Though his physician was reluctant to have him leave the house on Tuesday, the 10th, he went to the Senate, fearing that his absence would start a report of his il

Mr. Howe, writing so recently as in the last number of the North American Review, gives only the non-inting senators! Nor could there have been among then, for reasons already given, Messrs.

enjoy his home by snatches. She herself says: The romance of charity easily interests the public. Its laborious details and duties repel and weary the many, and find fitting ministers only in a few spirits of rare and untiring benevolence. Dr. Howe, after all the laurels and roses of victory, had to deal with the thorny ways of a profession tedious, difficult, and exceptional. He was obliged to create his own working machinery, to drill and instruct his corps of teachers, himself first le, under the stimulus of these influences, opened like a flower; she too became one of the seekers for light, and in her turn one of the light-bringers. Among the poems of her early married life, none is more illuminating than the portrait of Dr. Howe, which heads this chapter. The concluding stanza gives a hint of the depression which accompanied her first realization of the driving power of his life, of the whitehot metal of his nature. She was caught up as it were in the wake of a comet,

The stranger who should have asked who were the men ranged along the sides of the table would have heard in answer the names of Hawthorne, Motley, Dana, Lowell, Whipple, Peirce, the distinguished mathematician, Judge Hoar, eminent at the bar and in the cabinet, Dwight, the leading musical critic of Boston for a whole generation, Sumner, the academic champion of freedom, Andrew, the great War Governor of Massachusetts, Dr. Howe, the philanthropist, William Hunt, the painter, with others not unworthy of such company. We may complete the list and add the name of Holmes himself, to whose presence the club owed so much of its wit and wisdom. In such company the guests were tempted to linger long, and if Holmes has described the circle around the table, Lowell has celebrated the late walk at night across the bridge as he and Agassiz returned to Cambridge on foot together.
