Grotius in his escape from prison in Holland, so adroitly promoted by his wife; we join with Lavalette in France in his flight, aided also by his wife; and we offer our admiration and gratitude to Huger and Bollman, who, unawed by the arbitrary ordinances of Austria, strove heroically, though vainly, to rescue Lafayette from the dungeons of Olmutz. This admirable production, every page of which proclaims the scholar and the friend of human liberty, was beautifully printed in 1853, by John P. Jewett and Company, in a volume with elegant illustrations by Edwin T. Billings, and should find a place in every library. While abroad, Mr. Sumner's attention was naturally drawn to the condition of European prisons; and he availed himself of the opportunities afforded him by intercourse with distinguished friends of humanity, to study their various systems of discipline. On returning he continued his investigations on this subject; and in connection with Dr. Samuel G. Howe, the Rev. Franc

d Mrs. Stowe for more than three years. The following letters, both addressed to me,--I was then living in Worcester, Massachusetts,--will explain what occurred during these intervening years:-- Boston, November 21, 1853. Dear Sir, Messrs. J. P. Jewett & Co. of this city propose to establish a Literary and Anti-Slavery magazine -commencing probably in January. The publishers have energy and capital, and will spare no pains to make the enterprise completely successful. They will endeavend neither side. In haste, Most gratefully yours, Francis H. Underwood. The magazine thus indicated, which was clearly identified in plan and material with the Atlantic, was delayed four years in its birth by the business failure of John P. Jewett & Co., who were to have been its publishers. Mr. Underwood himself says, in the same article, After long efforts the due cooperation was secured and responsible publishers were found to take it up. He elsewhere states, It was planned at a

to a close. We do not recollect any production of an American writer that has excited more general and profound interest. For the story as a serial the author received $300. In the mean time, however, it had attracted the attention of Mr. John P. Jewett, a Boston publisher, who promptly made overtures for its publication in book form. He offered Mr. and Mrs. Stowe a half share in the profits, provided they would share with him the expense of publication. This was refused by Professor Stoy and gratefully, T. W. Higginson. A few days after the publication of the book, Mrs. Stowe, writing from Boston to her husband in Brunswick, says: I have been in such a whirl ever since I have been here. I found business prosperous. Jewett animated. He has been to Washington and conversed with all the leading senators, Northern and Southern. Seward told him it was the greatest book of the times, or something of that sort, and he and Sumner went around with him to recommend it to
his mind about everything. In his old age he attends prayer-meetings and reads the Missionary Herald. He also has plenty of money in an old brown sea-chest. He is a great heart with an inflexible will and iron muscles. I must go to Orr's Island and see him again. I am now writing an article for the Era on Maine and its scenery, which I think is even better than the Independent letter. In it I took up Longfellow. Next I shall write one on Hawthorne and his surroundings. To-day Mrs. Jewett sent out a most solemnly savage attack upon me from the Alabama planter. Among other things it says: The plan for assaulting the best institutions in the world may be made just as rational as it is by the wicked (perhaps unconsciously so) authoress of this book. The woman who wrote it must be either a very bad or a very fanatical person. For her own domestic peace we trust no enemy will ever penetrate into her household to pervert the scenes he may find there with as little logic or ki
of her attention, nor were her literary activities relaxed. Immediately upon the completion of her European tour, her experiences were published in the form of a journal, both in this country and England, under the title of Sunny memories. She also revised and elaborated the collection of sketches which had been published by the Harpers in 1843, under title of The Mayflower, and having purchased the plates caused them to be republished in 1855 by Phillips & Sampson, the successors of John P. Jewett & Co., in this country, and by Sampson Low & Co. in London. Soon after her return to America, feeling that she owed a debt of gratitude to her friends in Scotland, which her feeble health had not permitted her adequately to express while with them, Mrs. Stowe wrote the following open letter:-- To the ladies' anti-slavery Society of Glasgow: Dear Friends,--I have had many things in my mind to sa personally, but which I am now obliged to say by letter. I have had many fears tha

this notice he remarked improvement in the orator's style and method, which would make his appeals more persuasive with practical men. He said: There is the same glow in the style and richness of illustration that has marked all his preceding performances, whilst with the same high moral tone is blended greater caution than formerly in the statement of propositions which may give rise to dispute.

She wrote, Nov. 7, 1852:— Last evening I sat up and read with breathless interest your Algerine Slavery. It appears to me to be fitted to a high class of mind, just that class which it is exceedingly difficult to reach. Therefore I am certain that as an element of

p. 218.) Douglas in his speech, March 3, treated this description of a Northern man with Southern principles as intended for himself. R. H. Dana, Jr., wrote to Sumner, February 26: Your magnetic mountain is a thing that can neither be hid nor removed; it will be one of the everlasting hills. (Works, vol. III. pp. 327, 328.) The Whig papers of Boston did not print the speech; but it reached the people of Massachusetts through the Commonwealth newspaper, and a pamphlet edition issued by John P. Jewett & Co. The seats of senators were filled, and Sumner received congratulations from many of them, even from Badger and Butler. Butler in a speech, June 12, 1856, referred to the compliments which he gave Sumner at the time. Soule sent Sumner congratulations from Madrid, where he was then our minister. Even the extreme Southern men made no objection to the style and temper of his treatment of the question. C. F. Adams wrote, February 26:— I am much obliged to you for an early c

e need of an organ in which distinctly New England thought could find expression that the Atlantic was founded. The real father of the Atlantic was Francis H. Underwood, who projected a magazine as early as 1853 when he was in the offices of John P. Jewett and Co. of Boston. This firm had come into prominence as the publishers of Uncle Tom's cabin, then at the height of its fame, and a serial story by Mrs. Stowe was to have been a feature of the new periodical. Financial considerations prevented the appearance of the magazine as planned. After the firm of Jewett failed, Underwood became connected with Phillips, Sampson and Co., and at length persuaded them to undertake the venture. According to a familiar story the plan was really launched at a dinner given by Phillips, the senior member of the firm, to Underwood, Cabot, Motley, Longfellow, Lowell, Holmes, and Emerson. Later, Lowell was decided upon as the first editor. To Holmes is given the credit of suggesting the name Atlant
