an divine, and ending it as a defender of despotism. He was also for a time a Roman Catholic, but died in the Church of England. The turning-point of Hurlbert's life occurred, for me at least, when I met him once, to my great delight, at Centre Harbor, I being on my way to the White Mountains and he returning thence. We had several hours together, and went out on the lake for a long chat. He told me that he had decided to go to New York and enter the office of A.

He did not spare himself even in the recess, but went to work on a lecture—when Longfellow wrote again to Greene: What confidence Sumner has in Sumner! I would not trust H. W. L. to that amount, nor would you G. W. G. In August, Sumner made a visit to the White Mountains, his only excursion after he entered the Senate to that attractive resort of tourists. He made brief pauses at Centre Harbor, at the Glen, and at Crawford's, and ascended Mt. Washington,—on the summit of which a photographer insisted on taking him and Judge Clifford of the United States Supreme Court in one picture, which combined two public men about as opposite in character and career as they could be, and never standing so long together before or after. During this excursion Sumner and George Bemis casually met—two friends who were always in unison. Sumner wrote to Henry Woods, Paris, August 15:—

but certain, the Quakers are out! Give the flags to the winds! set the hills all aflame! Make way for the man with the Patriarch's name! Away with misgiving—away with all doubt, For Lincoln goes in, when the Quakers are out! A Legend of the Lake. [This poem, originally printed in the Atlantic Monthly was withheld from publication in his volumes by Mr. Whittier, in deference to living relatives of the hero of the poem. Death finally removed the restriction.] Should you go to Centre Harbor, As haply you sometime may, Sailing up the Winnepesaukee From the hills of Alton Bay,— Into the heart of the highlands, Into the north wind free, Through the rising and vanishing islands, Over the mountain sea,— To the little hamlet lying White in its mountain fold, Asleep by the lake and dreaming A dream that is never told,— And in the Red Hill's shadow Your pilgrim home you make, Where the chambers open to sunrise, The mountains, and the lake,— If the pleasant picture wearies, A
