credit was never given to Thurlow Weed for his successful efforts in England to pre- vent recognition of the Confederacy. Mr. Lincoln described Weed as ‘‘a master of masters in poli- tics,’’ and sent him on that difficult mission late in 1861 when the situation looked very dark. Our able minister at the court of St. James’s, Charles Francis Adams, possessed Mr. Lincoln’s entire con- fidence, but the President deemed it advisable to have a special commissioner to present his protest against the apprehended British recognition of the Southern Confederacy.

McMullin contends that ‘with the passage of time, the vitality of Sam declined,’ but this remark does not capture a gradual but decisive shift in emphasis.21 In The Attaché, Haliburton split himself three ways instead of two.

Lord Dramaleigh: Well, it is in accordance with the practice at the Court of St. James’s Hall [one of the principal ven- ues for the Christy Minstrels].

Yale’s student body had been exceptionally homogeneous: white, Anglo- Saxon, Protestant, often the sons of alumni, predominantly from private preparatory schools, especially the boarding schools of New England and the Middle Atlantic states.

minister to the Court of St. James’s in London. Over the next decade, Adams continued to live abroad and was often separated from his family for long stretches of time. When the newly con- stituted government of the fledgling United States was being put into operation, however, Adams returned home with a keen interest in serv- ing in that government.
