    Re: Life of Sumner

    Sorry, I don't have any personal information about Sumner, except the sentence 
    that I had read many years ago and reproduced in my last message to this 
    thread. Sumner's personal life should be very uneasy from his college days 
    then, as I see from scarce remarks done in this thread in the last days. 
    Maybe, he would be accepted as an interesting madcap today.
    But it could not be his only characte feature. After all, he became a merchant 
    master after some sea practice in an unforgiving environment. We (I) lack 
    some important details to this theme - but not important for Sumner's 
    intellectual significance.
