in a state of advancing civilization. There are few parts of the world in which I am so much interested. I wish I could report to you as well of my own country as I hear of yours. Of progress, indeed, we have enough. We advance in power, in prosperity, and in intellectual culture, with gigantic strides; and I have no doubt our future destiny is to be one of honor, and of ultimate benefit to the great cause of humanity.

Nobody can hereafter touch the subjects to which they are devoted without referring to them, and doing it with respect and admiration. But the man himself is in many important senses separate from all this. I knew him well, and I claim my portrait of him to
