The returned Senator Seward meets his New York City contituents

William Henry Seward, detail
12/29/1859
The day after his return from a seven and a half month visit to Europe, Senator W. H. Seward of New York gave speeches and received citizens in the Chamber of the Board of Aldermen in New York City.  Many perceived this, correctly, as the opening of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.
