The People's Party, at a mass convention in Springfield. October 24, presented as candidate for senator C. F. Adams; but at his instance his name was withdrawn by his son. (Boston Advertiser, October 28.) The hostile movement outside of the party was thought to have helped Sumner within it. Boston Advertiser, October 14, November 5.

I give you these few particulars of his visit; it was a visit most pleasant to me and to my family. Sumner left Liverpool by the Baltic, of the White Star line, November 14, and arrived in New York the 26th, refusing the offer from the company of a free passage. From Queenstown he wrote to Mr. Bright: I leave England with regret, wishing I could see more and mingle more with English people, who are for me most agreeable and interesting. Especially do I regret Inverary, which I should have visited, my last day with you was very pleasant, but too brief. Good-by.
