t without pain or any considerable fatigue. But there is still a something lurking in the system which must be eradicated, and my physician prescribes a course of baths and medicines. For this purpose I went to Dieppe, but soon became dissatisfied. There was water enough, but no libraries or books, and I at once left for London. . . . At Paris I found Palfrey's book, History of New England. which I read at once with great interest; it is admirable in all respects. Dana's book To Cuba and Back. I hear of in the hands of his London friends. I fund Lady Cranworth much pleased with it. Lord Stanhope finds his old friend W. Irving's Life of Washington very poor,— entirely unworthy of the subject and of the author. The Life of John Adams he recognizes as a very different work, and of positive merit. I hear of Seward's visit, but have not yet seen him. Since I have been in London he has been in the Provinces, where he went partly to escape the 4th of July dinner. Is he to be

wrote to Mrs. L. M. Child, April 2:— I trust that the letter to the emperor of Brazil, with the excellent tract, Mrs. Child's pamphlet, The Right Way the Safe Way. is already far on the way. I gave them to the Brazilian minister here, with the request that he would have the goodness to forward them. I count much upon the enlightened character of the emperor. Of course, slavery must cease everywhere when it ceases among us. Its neck is in our rebellion, which we are now sure to cut. Cuba, Porto Rico, and Brazil must do as we do, without our terrible war, I trust. Sumner remained in Washington two months longer. It was, as already seen, his custom to linger there after the close of a session in order to bring up arrears of business and correspondence, and to prosecute studies on questions pending or at hand; but he had a particular purpose now, when projects of reconstruction, in view of the approaching end of the rebellion, were rife. During these weeks he saw much of t

of our political policy. What can be better than the gradual extension of our republican system over the continent? George F. Edmunds wrote from Burlington, Vt.:— It ought to have a place in every school-room and in every library of the land. Give me leave to hope, however, that you will not hasten the closing prophecy of irresistible attraction, and that you bring a little of your potent obstructiveness and technicality to bear against the hasty purchase of the Danish islands or Cuba. You see I do not include British Columbia. Schuyler Colfax wrote from South Bend, Indiana:— I write this hurried note to tell you how much I was interested and instructed by your article in the last Atlantic. How you find time for so much research I cannot imagine; but the results are always valuable to your friends, among whom allow me to count as one.

XIII. pp. 32, 33. a resolution of sympathy with Spain in her effort for liberal institutions, with an appeal for the abolition of slavery; Dec. 17 and 19, 1868 (Congressional Globe, pp. 122,145). He reported against the resolution after the House had added a recognition of the independence of Cuba.-one of Mr. Banks's projects,—March 2 and 3, 1669 (Globe, pp. 1819, 1828, 1864). the maintenance of mixed courts in Africa for the suppression of the slave-trade under the treaty with Great Britain, and the payment of salaries to the judges.

He Senate took a recess till half-past 7 in the evening, when Morton replied to Sumner. He repelled the charge of usurpation and the comparison of the President with Buchanan and Pierce, but passed lightly over the use of our ships in the Haytian and Dominican waters. Though predicting the annexation of San Domingo and also of Cuba and Porto Rico at some future time, he as well as the other supporters of the resolution put aside the ultimate question, and contended that the proposed commission would result in useful information. Aorton's speech was the strongest on his side, and it kept within the limits of parliamentary law and good breeding. Nye justified the President, but paid a tribute to Sumner's character as the boldest among the bold of the champions of human freedom, as spotless as the mountain snow, and spok

This interest, ever ready to provoke or aid an insurrection in Cuba, held a public meeting at Steinway Hall, November 17, to stimulate a war spirit against Spain. William M.

Longfellow wrote on a postal card: I like your letter to the Cubans extremely. That is the way a statesman should thinkal armament against a friendly power, and the latter's subsequent career is well remembered. Behind all was the greed for Cuba and the watching of an opportunity to seize that possession of Spain. The whole transaction, reviving the memory of the O

odore Parker, already stricken with a mortal disease, was ordered to Cuba in the hope that a mild climate might check the progress of the conse four sailed for Havana. This expedition is described in A trip to Cuba. The opening chapter presents three of the little party during thhe pathetic words from Pere La Chaise: Implora Pace. The trip to Cuba was only the beginning of a long voyage for the Parkers, who were boe little fife shut up for the remainder of the evening. A trip to Cuba appeared first serially in the Atlantic Monthly, then in book form. Years after, a friend, visiting Cuba, took with her a copy of the little volume; it was seized at Havana by the customs house officers, and cing good about him, but shall say something at the end of my book on Cuba, whereof I am at present correcting the proof-sheets.

1841. Charles Francis Simmons. First Lieutenant and Adjutant 14th Mass. Vols. (Infantry), July 15, 1861; discharged, on resignation, January 24, 1862; lost at sea, February, 1862, on a voyage to Cuba, undertaken on account of a fatal disease of the lungs contracted in the service. At the Freshman examination of Harvard University, in 1837, I will remember to have observed, among my future classmates, a tall, erect young man, of demure aspect and rather sedate motions, with blue eyes and closely curling fair hair, who was pointed out by some one as Charles Simmons, with the prediction that he would be our first scholar. He came with an intellectual prestige, based less upon his own abilities than upon those of his two elder brothers, both of whom had been accounted remarkable for gifts and culture. Such a reputation is often rather discouraging to a younger brother, if it demands from him a career in any degree alien to his temperament. Perhaps it was so with Simmons.

n Providence, Rhode Island, January 12, 1837. He was the son of Almond D. Hodges, Esq., now of Boston, President of the Washington Bank, and of Martha (Comstock) Hodges. He entered Harvard College in 1852, when only fifteen, as a member of the Sophomore class, and graduated with honor and the regard of his classmates in 1855. In January, 1856, he became an assistant teacher in the school of Mr. Stephen M. Weld of Jamaica Plain. This position he held for a short time only, as he sailed for Cuba during the next October. He stayed awhile at Havana, and then went into the interior as tutor in a private family. In June, 1857, he returned home, not being pleased with Cuban habits and customs. On September 14, 1857, he entered the office of Hon. Peleg W. Chandler and George O. Shattuck, Esq., in Boston, where he remained until he went to the Harvard Law School, where he joined the Middle Class in the first term of 1858-59. He finished the course, and received the degree of Ll. B., and
