ty was the inheritance of Wendell Phillips. The blood of unmitigated Puritan and of unsullied Revolutionary sires ran in his veins. Freedom of thought and of religion had been the stamping-ground of his ancestors. He strove for them, no less than for freedom of being and of action. Born in Boston,--of which city his father, John Phillips, was the first mayor,--on the 29th of November, 1811, he was early destined to strange distinctions. In 1831 he was graduated from Harvard College; in 1834 he completed a course of study at the Harvard Law School, and received the degree of bachelor of laws.

To his mind, the Union was but a covenant between good and evil; and the Constitution, being at the bottom of the alliance, was specially odious in his eyes.

In 1863-64, he advocated the arming, educating, and enfranchising the freedmen, and for the two latter purposes procured the continuance of the Anti-slavery Society until the adoption of the Fifteenth Amendment in 1869. With this enactment the mission of Mr. Phillips seemed to have ended. For more than thirty years, standing face to face with masses of men, he had sent truth home to their souls in the most effectual manner. He had sown the dragon's teeth, from which sprang the armed men who alone w

But, in the trial of cases at the bar, he was training his eloquence; and before juries he was modulating that sweet voice which was so soon to thrill humanity with its melody of freedom. He was, indeed, learning the gamut of the harp of hearts. In January, 1832, the Anti-slavery Society was formed, just a year after William Lloyd Garrison had begun the publication of The Liberator in Boston. Who can forget the names of those noble-minded men and women eternally linked with the cause of emancipation? Wendell Phillips, at the age of twenty-four, found himself hurrying with them into the great struggle which was Impending. In the crowded thoroughfares of Boston, he found the mission of his manhood. Garrison had just been driven from an anti-sl
