XII. pp. 179-183. with one or two verbal changes, but without the amplification which he had probably intended to give it. He wrote to Lieber, September, 1867:— I am glad that you are interested in my article. Some of these voices' are curious enough.

He reached Boston November 9, weary, and still showing the effects of his injury. He repeated the lecture in Boston, Providence, Portland, and finally at Cooper Institute in New York, where Dr. Lieber was in the chair. On the later occasions of its delivery he dispensed with his notes. The New York Tribune and Boston Journal published, November 20, the lecture in full. The style of the lecture is stately and finished, and at the end

To my mind it is essentially just. Concerning naturalized e Senate or the people by the fact that the manager who was most in the public eye was General Butler. Sumner wrote to Lieber in May, 1868:-- I take it that the whole story in the Sun is a quiz. Wade assures me that he has not spoken with aot corroborated by any other statements known to the writer.

Sumner wrote to Lieber, May 30:— I have made no demand, not a word of apology, not a dollar; nor have I menaced, suggested, or thought of war. R. H. Dana, Jr., who thought that our Government should not have put forward the national or indirect damages for pecis I have no doubt. Slavery will end very soon in Cuba; it cannot remain much longer in Brazil. The earth will be fairer when this terrible blot is erased. The senator considered a year later the propriety of a resolution of Congress suspending diplomatic intercourse with nations maintaining slavery. He thought the example of the United States should be brought to bear for the promotion of that great end. Lieber, whom he consulted, did not second his thought, and he did not carry it out

Whiting, and Dr. Lieber, four distinguished publicists, with whom I have been in the habit of conferring on questions ng the submission to the Alabama claims. Sumner took satisfaction in the result.

He heard Hegel in his youth and thinks him, as I do, decidedly inferior to Kant, morally as well as philosophically .... The laws and duties of society rest upon a supposed compact, but this compact cannot deprive any set of men of rights and limit them to duties, for if you refuse them all rights, you deprive them even of the power to become a party to this compact, which rests upon their right to do so. Our slaves had no rights. Women have few. After leaving Washington, she spent several days with her sister Annie in Bordentown, and there and in New York gave readings which seem to have been much more successful than those in Washington.

interpretation is difficult and hazardous. Hegel's own saying about his lectures is well known: One only of my pupils understood me, and he misunderstood me. George Bancroft, the historian, spoke of Hegel as a man of weak character, and Dr. Francis Lieber, who had been under his instruction, had the same opinion of him. In the days of the Napoleonic invasion of Germany, Lieber had gone into the field, with other young men of the university. When, recovered from a severe wound, he took his pLieber had gone into the field, with other young men of the university. When, recovered from a severe wound, he took his place again among the students of philosophy, Hegel before beginning the day's lecture cried: Let all those fools who went out against the French depart from this class. I think that I must have had by nature an especial sensitiveness to language, as the following trifling narration will show. I was perhaps twelve years old when Rev. James Richmond, who had studied in Germany, dining at my father's house, spoke of one of his German professors who was wont, as the prelude to his exercise, to e

ipley, in the New York Tribune, Edwin Whipple and Frank Sanborn in Boston, reviewed the volume in a very genial and appreciative spirit. I think that my joy reached its height when I heard Theodore Parker repeat some of my lines from the pulpit. Miss Catharine Sedgwick, in speaking of the poems to a mutual friend, quoted with praise a line from my long poem on Rome. Speaking of my first hearing of the nightingale, it says:— A note Fell as a star falls, trailing sound for light. Dr. Francis Lieber quoted the following passage as having a Shakespearean ring:— But, as none can tell Among the sunbeams which unconscious one Comes weaponed with celestial will, to strike The stroke of Freedom on the fettered floods, Giving the spring his watchword-even so Rome knew not she had spoke the word of Fate That should, from out its sluggishness, compel The frost-bound vastness of barbaric life, Till, with an ominous sound, the torrent rose And rushed upon her with terrific brow, Sweeping

At 8.15 drove to the Century Building, which was fast filling with well-dressed men and women. Was conducted to the reception room, where I waited with those who were to take part in the performances of the evening. I will add here that I saw, among others, N. P. Willis, already infirm in health, and looking like the ghost of his former self. There also was Dr. Francis Lieber, who said to me in a low voice: Nur verwegen! (Only be audacious.) Presently a double line was formed to pass into the hall. Mr. Bancroft, Mr. Bryant, and I brought up the rear, Mr. Bryant giving me his arm. On the platform were three armchairs, which were taken by the two gentlemen and myself. The assemblage was indeed a notable one. The fashion of New York was well represented, but its foremost artists, publicists, and literary men were also present. Mr. Emerson had come on f
