Edward L. Pierce, Memoir and letters of Charles Sumner: volume 4, chapter 19 (search)
7, Mr. Fish stated that with regard to the alleged negligence of Mr. Sumner while chairman of the committee on foreign relations, it was a fact, susceptible of proof from the Senate records, that drafts of treaties [meaning treaties], from eight to eleven in number, remained in the hands of the committee for several months, some of them, as near as Mr. Fish could remember, for more than two years. In reply to a written request for a list of the treaties referred to, he answered by letter, October 29, printed in the Boston Transcript, enumerating nine, —one each with Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Austria, Salvador, and Great Britain, and two with Peru,—as transmitted to the Senate for its action, and referred by that body to the committee on foreign relations, while Mr. Sumner was its chairman, and which remained unacted upon at the time when he ceased to be such chairman; and later in the same letter he referred to the nine treaties as having failed to receive the considerat
nt, and in the case of the latter peculiarly conspicuous. Troops being called for from the east to reinforce Rosecrans, two army corps were hastily sent, the 11th under Howard, the 12th under Slocum. The first of these included the 33d Mass. (Lieut.-Col. Godfrey Rider, Jr., Steinwehr's division) and the second included the 2d Mass. (Colonel Cogswell, Williams's division). The orders arriving Sept. 24, 1863, the troops travelled west by rail for a week ere reaching their new command. On October 29 a sudden call was made upon the 33d to carry a very steep fortified hill, some two hundred feet high, at Wauhatchie; the task being intrusted by General Hooker to Col. Orland Smith (73d Ohio), brigade commander, who selected for the purpose his own regiment and the 33d Mass., some four hundred men in all. The steepness of the hill made it very difficult of ascent by daylight, and in the night it was a formidable enterprise. When the Confederate breastworks were at last reached, a voice sh

two R's (Rachel and Ristori). Later, we find her in the Sittings of the Owl Club, making game of the studies she loved. This owl went to Germany, This owl stayed at home; This owl read Kant and Fichte, This owl read none. This owl said To-whit! I can't understand the dogmatic categorical! The Northern Lights gleam fitfully in the Journal. October 26. To write Henry James for story, Charles T. Brooks for sketches of travel. Saw and talked with Gilmour, who confuses my mind. October 29. Chev went with me to Ristori's debut, which was in Medea. November 3. All of these days have been busy and interrupted. Maggi Count Alberto Maggi, an Italian litterateur. has been reading Ristori's plays in my parlor every day this week and my presence has been compulsory. I have kept on with Fichte whose Sittenlehre I have nearly finished. Have copied one or two poems, written various letters in behalf of the magazine, have seen Ristori thrice on the stage and once in private.

He made a most touching allusion to my dearest dear Julia's devotion to the blind, and said where a man was engaged in a noble work there usually rose up a noble woman to help him. October 26. Had a sudden blessed thought this morning, viz.: that the Tabernacle eternal in the heavens is the eternity of truth and right. I naturally desire life after death, but if it is not granted me, I have yet a part in the eternal glory of this tabernacle. October 29. Dear H. M. H. left us this morning, after a short but very pleasant visit. He brought here his decorations of his Russian order to show us; they are quite splendid. He is the same dear old simple music-and mischief-loving fellow, very sensitive for others, very modest for himself, and very dear. November 7.... Prayed hard this morning that my strength fail not. During this summer, an electric elevator had been put into the Boston house, and life was made much easier for her. From

ore, and it had a charm and magic in it all its own which I can never forget. . . . . I have not time to speak of the churches, the Exchange, the superb view of the town. . . . . They are all worth seeing; but the population of the city—its beautiful women, its busy, spirited citizens, the Jews, the grave Turks, and Persians, and lively Greeks that throng its narrow, inconvenient streets—are more interesting, and amused me until it was so dark I was obliged to go to my lodging. Loretto, October 29.—We went, of course, to see the Spezieria, or apothecary's shop of the Holy House, which was originally founded to afford medicines unpaid to the poor pilgrims who resorted to the shrine, and still offers them to the few who claim its benevolence. Among the founders of this institution were some of the Dukes of Urbino; and three hundred pots, vases, etc., to contain the medicines, all beautifully painted, and passing in the legends of Loretto for the works of Raphael, were among their pre<

ys, just long enough to make a few arrangements and get out my passport, and then go as fast as I can to Paris. On board the packet I wrote to Mr. Gallatin, desiring him to take out the order for opening the king's library to me, an operation that occupies a week. . . . . In a month, I should think, everything will be finished, and then, returning through London,. . . . I shall make all haste to Edinburgh. . . . . To Mr. Elisha Ticknor. Paris, December 22, 1818. Yours of the 16th—29th October, my dear father, arrived since I last wrote you, and, what is better, one from Savage of November 9, both of which speak of great improvement in my mother's health. They have, therefore, removed a great load from my fears, and I feel now as if I had once more the free exercise of my faculties. I have received the necessary permission at the king's library, and am in full operation among its great treasures. I have, besides, made the acquaintance of Moratin, an exiled Spaniard, who is
