"How through these years in silence thou hast borne the cruel doubt, the slanders of debate, the assassin's knife, and keener blade of scorn, wielded by party in its narrow hate: How could'st thou pause each step to vindicate of thy surpassing work? Lo! It is done. Freedom enshrined in our regenerate state. And they who were divided made one!"
