SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE

To E. L. Pierce.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 23,1854.

MY DEAR PIERCE: - Your article had already attracted my attention and I had cut it out for Bailey to print if he could find room, before receiving the Columbian with your autograph which revealed to me the author. It is a capital article well conceived and admirably expressed. It makes me regret that you propose to devote yourself to the law rather than to the wider and widening field of journalism. If you would devote yourself to the establishment of a paper in Cincinnati, such as the N. York Times in New York, you would in ten or fifteen years have a fortune in it besides wielding an almost uncomputable influence.
Sumner acquitted himself nobly - grandly. His speech satisfied every expectation.
We hope to kill the monster; but we want the voice of a great meeting at Cincinnati.
Yours truly,
