SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE
To Charles Sumner.
WASHINGTON May 25, 1850.
MY DEAR SUMNER: Mrs. Chase and her sister, with two of my children are at Northampton. Her purpose in going their was to place herself under the care of Dr. Munde, but his establishment not being completed, she has taken quarters for the present at Round Hill in charge of Dr. Hill.
The Senate will adjourn next Monday for the purpose of giving an opportunity to clean up and put down the matting and will continue to adjourn from time to time till the second Monday thereafter.
Now from these premises what follows? Why, clearly, this; that Senator Chase will be in Massachusetts at Northampton on Saturday of next week if alive and well, and will not be much inclined to quit Massachusetts until the Saturday following.
Now, if Charles Sumner Esq. could but find it in his heart to meet the aforesaid Senator Chase at Northampton!
I thank you for your last kind note. I saw Rantoul here yesterday. He seemed to entertain no doubt of Palfrey's election.
