He wrote Jan. 19, 1849, regretting that Sumner had been hurt by his comments on the latter's relation to reforms:— Rightly considered, what I wrote was proof of esteem, like Parson Thwackens's birching of Tom Jones. Had you been an ordinary philanthropist, a common abolitionist, a mere ranting patriot like some of your friends, I should never have troubled myself about you.

Gillette, the new antislavery senator from Connecticut, who had been waiting for an opportunity to deliver a speech on slavery in the District of Columbia, took a manuscript from his desk and occupied an hour or more in reading it. All were amused when Jones of Tennessee treated Gillette's prepared speech as proof that the antislavery senators knew of the contest in advance, and had conspired to bring it on. Pettit declaimed with his habitual vulgarity on the inferiority of the African race. Wilson made his first antislavery speech in the Senate; and being the first senator elected by the Know Nothings, his remarks attracted unusual attention, and he was closely questioned by the Compromise senators. Thus the evening went on. It was eleven whe
