Health of Charles Sumner The Transcript says that the reports of Mr. Sumner’s health received by the Persia, are not so favorable as his friends could wish. His chief difficulty appears to be in his spine, as he is easily fatiqued by walking and after having been seated any considerable length of time, he moves about when rising, like a veteran of eighty years. . He is now visiting the rural districts of France. His mind is very active, and his spirits quite cheerful. May this search for entire restoration to health, on the part of Mr. Sumner, be crowned with success.
