t Richmond the gavel of the Confederate Congress, which he proposed to give to Stanton, Mr. Lincoln said to Speaker Colfax that he ought to have it, adding, Tell him [Sumner] from me to hand it over. This was the President's last pleasantry before going to the play on the fatal night. Boston Journal, April 15; New York Tribune, April 17. They returned to the boat, where they remained till morning. This was Sumner's first and only visit to Richmond; and it gave him an opportunity to see Crawford's statue of Washington, in which he had been greatly interested. The night was weird, with Manchester still burning, and the flames visible from the boat, but Richmond lying in darkness. The next morning (Friday) the party returned to City Point, and (the President joining them) they went to Petersburg, going and returning by rail, and on Saturday visited the tent hospitals at City Point, where the President shook hands with five thousand sick and wounded soldiers, saying to Sumner that h

e; but his interest in exigent questions did not allow him this relief. 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:— I am glad to believe that our r
Note. The following is a memorandum of the known likenesses of Sumner arranged as nearly as may be in chronological order:— 1. The earliest representation of any kind is Crawford's bust, taken at Rome in 1839, now in the Boston Art Museum (ante, vol. II. pp. 94, 265). 2. Crayon drawing, by Eastman Johnson in 1846, belonging to the Longfellow family, and engraved for this Memoir (vol. II.). It is held by the artist to have been a good likeness at the tine, but others express a doubt. 3. Crayon, by W. W. Story; made from sittings in 1851 at the request of the seventh Earl of Carlisle, with some final touches from Seth W. Cheney, as Story left for Europe before it was quite finished (ante, vol. III. p. 64; IV. p. 261). It has been kept at Castle Howard, Yorkshire; it is a good likeness, and represents Sumner at his best, in the fulness and strength of manhood. Prescott wrote to Sumner in January, 1852: You cannot expect a better likeness in every sense. It was lithogra
