A Noble Man Wise Brave Patriotic Statesman Untiring Champion of the Common People Upholder of Civil and Religous Liberty Defender of the Constitutional Rights of Nation State and Humblest Citizen Devoted to His Country and His State He Never Failed a Friend, Avoided a Foe or Shunned a Duty

God Is and Is Good I am for America, our America, above all the world I stand for the national sovereignty in national affairs and state sovereignty in local affairs The prosperity and happiness of the greatest possible number should be the highest aim of government Be true and render service

I shall vote against this monstrous mistake, this resolution for the declaration of war to prevent which I would willingly lay down my life. But if the powers constitutionally authorized to speak for the People on this momentous issue shall decide for war, then my eyes will be blind to everything but the flag of my country, borne by American boys through the storm of war and my ears deaf to everything save the call of my country in its hour of peril.
