American Review, which immediately followed. This periodical, during far the larger part of its early career, was under the editorship of Cambridge men. After the first editor, William Tudor, there came a long line of Cambridge successors — Willard Phillips, Edward Tyrrel Channing, Edward Everett, Jared Sparks, John Gorham Palfrey, Francis Bowen, and, after some interval, James Russell Lowell and Charles Eliot Norton. The list of chief contributors to the first forty volumes of the Review, as Motley, Holmes, Cabot, Underwood, and the publisher Phillips, to talk about the new magazine the last wishes to establish. It will no doubt be done; though I am not so eager about it as the rest. Journal and letters, II. pp. 298, 299. Compare Phillips's letter in Cooke's J. S. Dwight, p. 243. There were apparently but eight persons at this dinner, one-half of these being of Cambridge birth or residence, since Underwood had lately removed thither.

and it was only the revolt of his kindly nature against Calvinism which threw him finally on the side of progress. The Saturday Club with all its attractions did not lead him in that direction. It brought together an agreeable set of cultivated men, but none of the more strenuous reformers of its day, however brilliant, except Emerson and occasionally Sumner and Howe. Edmund Quincy and James Freeman Clarke were not admitted until 1875, after the abolition of slavery. Garrison, Parker, Phillips, Alcott, Wasson, Weiss, and William Henry Channing were never members of the Saturday Club and probably never could have been elected to it; but they were to be looked for every month at the Radical Club,afterward called the Chestnut Street Club,which certainly rivalled the Saturday in brilliancy in those days, while it certainly could not be said of it, as Dr. Holmes said of the Saturday, We do nothing but tell our old stories; we never discuss anything. Possibly all such gatherings tend

same energetic way would have saved the disasters of Harper's Ferry and Norfolk. And he was one of the first to proclaim publicly, while Mr. Seward was still trying to keep the question of slavery wholly out of the affair: We cannot think that the war we are entering on can end without some radical change in the system of African slavery. . . . The fiery tongues of the batteries in Charleston harbor accomplished in one day a conversion which the constancy of Garrison and the eloquence of Phillips had failed to bring about in thirty years. Such words were half battles, at that day. The biographers of Lowell all agree that he was a good editor. This is of course true as to taste, judgment, and a steadily widening sympathy. On the business side of editorship, however, it was a great relief when Fields took the helm; and the following two letters will indicate the point where Lowell was deficient. Theodore Parker had died on May Io, 1860, and I had taken pains to write promptly a

He was the prime mover in almost every project at that time for the practical benefit of the city. He was aided by such men as the late Judge Willard Phillips, Herbert H. Stimpson, Charles C. Little, Estes Howe, and John Livermore. These men believed that the time would come when the pumps would get rusty and tder by Mr. Hubbard, who was chosen chairman, and the late Dr. Estes Howe was elected clerk pro tempore. The officers elected were: directors, H. H. Stimpson, Willard Phillips, Charles C. Little, and G. G. Hubbard; Estes Howe was elected clerk and treasurer. Of these Mr. Hubbard is now the only living representative. Mr. Stimpson

om Persius? That was the only thing I would ask to strike out. It was far-fetched, knotty, and hard to be translated. Near the close of his second year in the Law School, he began to write for the American Jurist, a law periodical which maintained a high rank, and numbered among its contributors Theron Metcalf, Simon Greenleaf, Luther S. Cushing, George S. Hillard, and Dr. I. Ray. Some of its series of articles—notably, Judge Metcalf's on Contracts—afterwards grew into treatises. Willard Phillips—author of the treatise on The Law of Insurance—was the editor. Sumner's first contribution was to the number for July, 1833,—a notice of a lecture before King's College, London, by Professor J. J. Park, on Courts of Equity. Vol. X. pp. 227-237. The English professor died shortly after, too soon to read this notice of his lecture. The article defines at some length and with happy illustrations the distinction between law and equity, then much misconceived. Judge Story noted it, i

s heard or decided by the Supreme Court, and of his labors as professor and author. Cleveland and Felton remembered him with many letters, full of affection, each detailing his studies, and the latter reporting also the incidents of college life. Lieber invoked his good offices with publishers and critics. Among correspondents who wrote with less frequency were Longfellow, Mr. Daveis, Luther S. Cushing (who wrote concerning The Jurist), Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Lawrence, Richard Fletcher, Willard Phillips, and Benjamin Rand; and, after their return from Europe, Mr. Ticknor and Dr. Shattuck. His letters to Judge Story and Hillard were read by other intimate friends, and his experiences became quite generally known in Boston and Cambridge. Americans returning from Europe reported his success in English society. His speech at Newcastle, which was read in a Boston newspaper, was much commended. His social career abroad attracted attention at home, and his return was awaited with unusu

t merely at the name and fame of our common country; it is a blow at constitutional liberty all the world over,—it is a stab at the cause of universal freedom. At Cambridge, the addresses were made by Joel Parker, Theophilus Parsons, and Willard Phillips, three well known jurists; Sparks, the historian; Felton, Felton, who had been separated from Sumner since 1850, at a dinner on the day after hearing of the assault, proposed as a toast, The re-election of Charles Sumner.
