Jula Ward Howe, Reminiscences: 1819-1899, Chapter 4: home life: my father (search)
Yet I seemed to myself like a young damsel of olden time, shut up within an enchanted castle. And I must say that my dear father, with all his noble generosity and overweening affection, sometimes appeared to me as my jailer. My brother's return from Europe and subsequent marriage opened the door a little for me. It was through his intervention that Mr. Longfellow first visited us, to become a valued and lasting friend. Through him in turn we became acquainted with Professor Felton, Charles Sumner, and Dr. Howe. My brother was very fond of music, of which he had heard the best in Paris and in Germany. He often arranged musical parties at our house, at which trios of Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert were given. His wit, social talent, and literary taste opened a new world to me, and enabled me to share some of the best results of his long residence in Europe. My father's jealous care of us was by no means the result of a disposition tending to social exclusiveness. It proceed

ose recent death had greatly grieved us. Longfellow and Sumner often visited us in our retirement. The latter once made given day. Mr. Longfellow came for me in a buggy, while Mr. Sumner conducted my two sisters and our friend. We found Lauived at the Institution, but before we took leave of it, Mr. Sumner, looking out of a window, said, Oh! here comes Howe on hould be able to wipe it out with a flirt of his pen! Charles Sumner was spoken of, and Mr. Carlyle said, Oh yes; Mr. SumneMr. Sumner was a vera dull man, but he did not offend people, and he got on in society here. Carlyle's hair was dark, shaggy, andngland than any other, and more there than elsewhere. Mr. Sumner had given us a letter to the Marquis of Lansdowne, whichciety people of the place being mostly in villeggiatura. Mr. Sumner had given us letters to two of the law lords. One of ths to friends in Dublin. At the same time he had written Mr. Sumner that he hoped Dr. Howe would not in any way become consp

My eldest brother, Samuel Ward, had made Mr. Sumner's acquaintance through a letter of introductd not seem to have fallen upon his son. Charles Sumner's appearance was curiously metamorphosed bhear it. I like to see lions break the ice. Sumner was silent for a few minutes, but presently sahe first political speech which I heard from Mr. Sumner was delivered, if I mistake not, at a school noble nature. I asked my husband to invite Sumner to dine with us at Willard's Hotel, where we wan who, not long after this time, attacked Charles Sumner in his seat in the senate chamber, choosina residence of many years in Washington that Mr. Sumner decided to build and occupy a house of his enewed on the part of their former masters.

deprecated all opposition to its enactments. During my absence Charles Sumner had been elected to the Senate of the United States, in place otherto been the political idol of the Massachusetts aristocracy. Mr. Sumner's course had warmly commended him to a large and ever increasing mptions of the slave power. The social ostracism which visited Charles Sumner never fell upon Dr. Howe. This may have been because the activs dismissed from his place. He had been on friendly terms with Charles Sumner, to whom he probably owed his appointment. He tormented this ee as to terminate all relations between the two. Of this breach Mr. Sumner gave the following account: The count would come to my rooms at aed the acquaintance! The count after this spoke very bitterly of Mr. Sumner, whose procedure did seem to me a little severe. Unfortunately. John Pierpont, who happened to be in Washington at the time.

having among my hearers some of the chief notabilities then present at the capital. In my journal of this time, never published, I find the following account of a day in Washington:— To the White House, to see Carpenter's picture of the President reading the emancipation proclamation to his Cabinet. An interesting subject for a picture. The heads of Lincoln, Stanton, and Seward nearly finished, and good portraits. Dressed for dinner at Mrs. Eames's, where Secretary Chase and Senator Sumner were expected. Mr. Chase is a stately man, very fine looking and rather imposing. I sat by him at dinner; he was very pleasant. After dinner came Mrs. Douglas in her carriage, to take me to my reading. Senator Foster and Mr. Chase announced their intention of going to hear me. Mr. Chase conducted me to Mrs. Douglas's carriage, promising to follow. Proteus, or the secret of success, was my topic. I had many pleasant greetings after the lecture. Mr. Chase took me in his carriage to

e Duchess granted me a short tete-à--tete. My only objection to a lady's speaking in public, she said, is based upon St. Paul's saying: I suffer not a woman to teach, etc. I replied, Yes; but remember that, in another place, he says that a woman may prophesy wearing a veil. She assented to this statement, but did not appear to interest herself much in my plan of a Woman's Peace Congress. She had always been much interested in Dr. Howe's work, and began to ask me about him, and about Charles Sumner, for whom she entertained great regard. Messages were presently sent in to the effect that the carriage was waiting for the afternoon drive, and I took my leave, expecting no help from this very amiable and estimable lady. Before the beginning of my Sunday services, I received a letter from Mr. Aaron Powell of New York, asking me to attend a Peace Congress about to be held in Paris, as a delegate. I accordingly crossed the Channel, and reached Paris in time to attend the principal s

arrival, having previously sent us a fine basket of fruit. He seemed an intelligent man, and my husband's estimate of him was much opposed to that conveyed in Mr. Sumner's invective against a traitor who sought to sell his own country. Baez had sense enough to recognize the security which annexation to the United States would gle horses and bearing a missive from Dr. Howe, requesting my immediate return. I have elsewhere alluded to this and to Dr. Howe's touching words, Our dear, noble Sumner is no more. Come home at once. I am much distressed. My husband had been greatly chagrined by Mr. Sumner's conduct with regard to the proposed annexation of Mr. Sumner's conduct with regard to the proposed annexation of Santo Domingo. The death of his lifelong friend seemed to bring back all his old tenderness and he grieved deeply over his loss. Of the longevity of the negro population of Santo Domingo we heard wonderful accounts. I myself, while in Samana, saw and spoke with a colored woman who was said to have reached the age of one hundr
