  JENNY LIND AND UNCLE TOM.—Grace Greenwood writes from England to the National Era that during her voyage, Jenny Lind and her husband, who were her fellow passengers, both read "Uncle Tom's Cabin" during the passage, the latter with "unbounded enthusiasm." Grace says, "I soon saw that the hearts of these two beat with an equal warmth for freedom, and that their sympathies for the oppressed were generous and deep."
