r the benefit of the college library, my desire being that the income should be applied to the purchasing of books relating to politics and fine arts. This bequest is made in filial regard for the college. In selecting especially the library, I am governed by the consideration that all my life I have been a user of books, and, having few of my own, I have relied on the libraries of friends and on public libraries; so that what I now do is only a return for what I have freely received. 11.

In testimony whereof I hereunto set my hand this second day of September, 1873, at Boston. Charles Sumner. Signed and published by the administrator as his last will and testament, before us, who, in his presence and in the presence of each other, have at his request set our names as witnesses. H. J. Edwards. George A. Bullen. John E. Hecktor. F. V. Balch.
