Hon. E. Sumner Mansfield '68, Belgian Consul in Boston, will deliver a lecture on "The Congo Question" in the Living Room of the Union this evening at 8 o'clock. Since the Congo Free State was annexed by Belgium over a year ago, that government has been criticised freely for misurle, and Mr. Mansfield will speak largely on this topic. This lecture will be open only to members of the Union.
After graduating from College, Mr. Mansfield entered the Law School, from which he received the degree of LL.B. in 1870. Two years later he began to practice law in Boston, prior to which he had been admitted to the bar in Louisiana. On account of valuable services rendered to King Leopold II, he was appointed Belgian Consul for the port of Boston in December, 1894. Last August he was decorated as Chevalier of the Order of Lecpold.
