SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE

To Charles Sumner.

COLUMBUS, June 11, 1860.

MY DEAR SUMNER, Your great speech came to me, under your frank, this morning. I had read it all - in the " Bulletin" of Phila. in the "Times" of N. Y. and in the " Globe " - before I received the pamphlet copy. It is gratifying to know that the N. Y. Herald also prints it, and that, through various channels of publication, it will reach every corner of the land, " cogens omnes ante thronum."
"C'est prequ' [sic] un discours antique," said a French gentleman to me last Saturday. I say, C'est bien plus.
Faithfully yours,
