Editorial Note

Enclosed is a letter from A.B. Johnson to Charles Sumner, July 31, 1860.
Boston 5th Aug. ’60.
Dear Mrs Seward,
Here is a long letter.
Pray read it &, if your
husband
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
can follow out
the suggestions with re-
gard to Mr Davidson & Mr
Corning
Birth: 1794-12-14 Death: 1872-04-09
, he will be
doing a good work.
The young man injured
is a brother
Birth: 1839-06-25 Death: 1905-03-23
of my clerk

for a short time in the
service of your husband.
His character is excellent,
& he had just gone to
Schenectady for an edu-
cation. As his means
are very small, it is
important that he
should recover from
the Rail-road without
delay or cost such dam-
ages as may be fairly
due. His brother thinks

that a letter from Govr
Seward will help him
much. Of course it
will.
It seems to me that the
Govr was never at
any moment so popu-
lar as now. Is he
hard at work? But
why ask? He always
is? How does he
feel about his electio-
neering tour?

I was sorry to hear from
my brother George
Birth: 1817-02-05 Death: 1863-10-06
that
you did not seem very
well. I hope you are
better now.
As for myself, I am
furiously sun-burnt. The
Adamses

are happy enough
at the old homestead; Mrs
A. rejoicing in the en-
gagement of her eldest son
John Quincy Adams
Birth: 1833-09-22 Death: 1894-08-14
with a
beautiful young lady Miss Fanny
Crowninshield
Birth: 1839-10-15 Death: 1911-05-16
. God bless you!
Ever yours,
Charles Sumner
