Edward L. Pierce, Memoir and letters of Charles Sumner: volume 2, Chapter 25: service for Crawford.—The Somers Mutiny.—The nation's duty as to slavery.—1843.—Age, 32. (search)
ed:— After this survey, it will be difficult to see how it can be said that the people of the Free States are foreigners, so far as Slavery is concerned; or that they are laboring to produce an effect, without the shadow of right to interfere. On the contrary, the subject is in many respects directly within their jurisdiction. Upon the North, as well as the South, rests the sin of sustaining it. The Supreme Court of Massachusetts, in an elaborate judgment, Commonwealth v. Aves, 18 Pickering's Reports, p. 209 (1836). has pronounced it contrary to the law of nature. The denunciations of the first moralist of the age, and the pictures of one of the first poets of the age, The references are to Dr. Channing and Mr. Longfellow. have marked it with the brand of shame. More than these: the conscience of every right-minded man proclaims that it is contrary to the Golden Rule of justice. How, then, can we sustain it? Lord Morpeth wrote, March 2, 1843:— I admired extrem

Vol. IX. pp. 49-66. Works, vol. i. pp. 214-240. a biographical sketch of John Pickering, in which he dwelt upon the latter's studies in philology, and his union ofduates of the college who had recently died, and was entitled, The Scholar (John Pickering); the Jurist (Joseph Story); the Artist (Washington Allston); and the Phila all were his personal friends, though much older than himself. He had known Pickering at the bar and in private life; he had made frequent visits to Allston's studf, that she would not give her dead sons for any living sons in Christendom. Pickering, Story, Allston, Channing,—a grand quaternion! Each in his peculiar sphere wforgetful and noble. It is the grand inspiration yet vouchsafed to man. Like Pickering, blend humility with learning. Like Story, ascend above the present, in plac surprised, delighted, and instructed, especially by your glowing eulogium on Pickering, Story, Allston, and Channing.

r a sherbet. Tell me of Rome, of yourself, wife, and children; of art, and particularly the statue of your father. Give my love to your wife, and kisses to the children. To Theodore Parker, An answer to Mr. Parker's letter of August 4, inquiring as to the comparative merits of the two chief-justices of Massachusetts. August 6:— With the exception of a meagre address, which is preserved in the Jurist of twenty years ago, Shaw's productions are his judgments, in the Reports of Pickering, Metcalf, and Cushing,—a goodly number,—and all having a uniform stamp. He is always verbose, but instructive, and deals with his cases strongly. I do not agree with Mann in his admiration of his powers; nor do I agree with the late Benjamin Rand when he insisted upon calling him muddy-mettled. You will see his powers in the case of the slave Med. His opinions, like Story's, are too long; but they are less interesting than Story's, have less life, and lack his learning. Parsons's deci<

gar Square, arranged his visits to the libraries. W. W. Story, whom he plied with many questions of a technical character, was his companion on the visit to the Cesnola collection. Two American friends from Boston,—G. W. Smalley of the New York Tribune, and Henry T. Parker, a co-tenant of a suite of offices at No. 4 Court Street, twenty-five years before,—were assiduous in their attentions to him. He was very busy in the purchase of autographs and rare books, and frequented the shops of Pickering, Quaritch, and Ellis, buying here as in Paris rather lavishly than wisely, and only regretting when he left each place that he had not bought more, even at prices which repelled connoisseurs. W. H. H. in New York Tribune, Oct. 18, 1872, and G. W. S. in the same journal, March 9, 1881. His purchases of this kind in London and Paris involved an outlay of $6,000. It is perhaps needless to refer to a statement (wholly untrue) that the senator's friends made up a purse to pay the expenses

ation Association, 10 A. M., Tremont Temple. I wish to record this thought which came to me on my birthday: As for individuals, no bettering of fortunes compares in importance with the bettering of character; so among nations, no extension of territory or aggregation of wealth equals in importance the fact of moral growth. So no national loss is to be deplored in comparison with loss of moral earnestness. Oak Glen, June 30. ...Finished this afternoon my perusal of the Memoir of Mr. John Pickering. Felt myself really uplifted by it into an atmosphere of culture and scholarship, rarely attained even by the intelligent people whom we all know ... July 12. .... I pray this morning for courage to undertake and fervor to accomplish something in behalf of Christian civilization against the tide of barbarism, which threatens to over-sweep it. This may be a magazine article; something, at any rate, which I shall try to write. 1 P. M. Have made a pretty good beginning in this tas
