Here also you may meet the best society of London. I have often met Hallam Henry Hallam, 1777-1859. He invited Sumner several times to dine with him,—once in company with Professor Whewell,—and expressed his regard by other attentions. Sumner met the historian again in London, in September, 1857. at the Athenaeum. I was standing the other day by the side of a pillar, so that I was not observed by him, when he first met Phillips, Thomas Phillips.—the barrister who visited America during the last summer; and he cried out, extending his hand at the same time: Well, you are not tattooed, really! Hallam is a plain, frank man, but is said to be occasionally quite testy and restless. Charles Babbage, 1790-1871; the mathematician. himself one of the most petulant men that ever<
788-1844. Charles Austin,—one of the cleverest, most enlightened, and agreeable men in London,—and Crowder, the Queen's counsel. Talfourd Thomas Noon Talfourd, 1795-1854. He entered Parliament in 1835, and the same year gave to the public his tragedy of Ion. His Athenian Captive followed in 1838. His Copyright Act distinguihe simple roof of the poetess, that he did not know the residence of the greatest ornament of his town! Another morning was devoted to Carlyle. Thomas Carlyle, 1795—.He had, prior to 1839, published besides miscellaneous papers the Sartor Resartus, and French Revolution. His Burns had been read with great interest by Sumner wd instructive, —during which I saw most of the persons eminent at the university, and visited the various colleges. Dined with Whewell, William Whewell, D. D., 1795-1866; master of Trinity College, and author of scientific works. and met a large company; next day dined in hall at Trinity, and then repaired to the Combination
it; and both he and Poole entertained me by their reminiscences of Godwin. While I listened late at night to these reminiscences, I did not expect the next evening to be sitting on the same sofa chatting with Godwin's daughter, Mrs. Shelley, 1798-1851. She invited Sumner to tea, at her house in Park Street. the author of Frankenstein. I dined with Theobald, William Theobald, author of The Law of Principal and Surety. whose legal writings you well know, and, stealing away from his drawiChanning's Texas, which is a good deal from such a churchman. I passed a very pleasant evening last week—till long past midnight—with Mr. and Mrs. Basil Montagu. Basil Montagu, 1770-1851. He was educated at Cambridge, and called to the bar in 1798. He made the Law of Bankruptcy, both in practice and as a writer, his specialty in the profession. He co-operated with Romilly in the movement to abolish capital executions for minor offences, and was active in the Temperance reform. He was an

When he heard the cry, Four o'clock, and a cloudy morning, he leaped from his bed, threw open his window, and, hailing the terrified watchman, cried out: It's not four o'clock; it wants five minutes of it! and, after this volley, at once fell asleep. At the same dinner last week, I met Hallam, Whewell, Babbage, Lyell, Sir Charles Lyell, 1797-1875. Murchison, Sir Roderick Impey Murchison, 1792-1871. Dr. Buckland, Sedgwick, Rev. Adam Sedgwick, 1785—. and one or two M. P. s. Hallam talked about Prescott's book, and praised it very much. He said that Lord Holland was in ecstasy about it; and that he was the most competent judge of it in England. Mr. Mountstuart Elphinstone 1779-1859; noted for his official service in India, and his descriptive and historical writings upon that country.—one of the most remarkable men in Engla
