Excerpt from America's Advancement

A significant and encouraging example has been found in the case of a retired Secretary of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet; and too high a value can hardly be put upon Mr. Gideon Welles' papers, contributed to the Galaxy Magazine two and three years ago. The immediate occasion of their appearance was the Memorial Address delivered before the Legislature of New York at Albany, by Charles Francis Adams, in honor of Secretary Seward. In what Mr. Welles deemed to be a highly exaggerated estimate of Mr. Seward's services in the Lincoln Cabinet, he had a clear right to his judgment, as had Mr. Adams himself. Nor do we think that he would have forbidden the right of the orator, unless he was deemed to have departed far enough from the truth of history to provoke criticism. It was therefore most important for a public man like Mr. Welles, who had the fairest possible opportunity to know all the facts, to correct Mr. Adams' mistakes. It was very natural that the late Minister to England, whose valuable services to the country all men are ready to acknowledge, should, in his warm personal friendship for Mr. Seward, be disposed to speak in terms of the highest eulogy. But it could not be supposed that at so great a distance from Washington, he could be informed on the matters of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet, as one of the most sagacious and judicious of its members, who during the whole term of the administration was steadily at his post, and one of the most trusted and pure members of the Cabinet. Gwe give some important passages from Mr. Welles' book, as it appeared, embracing. The articles that had been printed in the Magazine.
