Custar on Forney and the Philadelphia
John W., Forney recently pub
lished a bitter attack m General
Custar, the dashing cavalry Gener
al, charging that his course was in
consistent with his past, and that
his views on Reconstruction had
been modified since iiis testimony
before the Congressional commit
tee on Reconstruction. Custar has
replied. We have not space for
all his letter, but give the follow
ing extracts :
Tojiihn II". Eoniey:
A (cw of the most extreme
lfmlirnl journals have prrtrmlod to discov
er an Inconsistency between the vh ws em
biiiceil in my testimony, before the Con
rressional committee on Reconstruction In
March la.-t. nnd in mv present action as a
delegate to the Philadelphia Convention,
and ii supporter of the principles enuncia
ted in the resolutions mid platform pro
claimed and Adopted by that illustrious,
national and patriotic assembly, composed
of representative from every State and
evcrv Territory in the I'ninn. nnd there
tore the first truly National Convention
which has nembled in our country dur
ing the past sis years. Prominent in this
misrepresentation and wilful perversion of
the truth. Is the organ controlled and edit
ed bv yourself, and. were it uof for the of
ficial portion which you hold. I would not
deem mvseiriusiitied'in referliijr to you.
1 will not refer to the seditious and liillani
mntory epithets vou applied to that Con
vention, of which I nm proud to have been
a member, but will only class tliem w ith
your insidious and w icked harangues pro
nounced inthecitv of Philadelphia, during
the sitting of tho 'C onvention, in which you
endeavored to stir the passions of what you
supposed a mob to deeds of violence and
blood. Neither will I occupy time in ex
posing vour bnseness in characterizing
those gallant soldiers of 'the Union who
took part in the Convention, as being In
fluenced by any but the highest, noblest
and most patriotic impulse which govern
the human will. Much less w ere they, as
you insinuate, tinctured with disloyalty.
Such unwarranted, unjust and unprovoked
assertions come from you with bad grace
when directed against those, who, during
the entire war. have freely; and unselfishly
periled their lives to restore, defend, and
nermtuate the principles of a constitutiou-
al Government, which you are laboring to
destroy. What have you to gain in ma
ligning and traducing .those whose patriot
ism nas undergone me icst ui muuo mm ia
beyond Impeachment t
As to the propriety of my course in at
tending the National Union Convention. I
recognize neither in you, nor In those you
represent, the right to question my motives.
If 1 satisfy' my God, my country and my
conscience. I achieve my highest aiui. That
my course has received the approval of the
first, and will ultimately, if not now, re
ceive that of the second, Is evinced by the
hearty approvul of tho third. ' As. was so
feelingly expressed by,' the distinguished
statesman and patriot who presided Over
the deliberations of the Convention, "peace
hath her victories, none the less renowned
than war," and along with the many vic
tories achieved upon many a hardly con
tested field by the courage, fidelity, and
perseverance of our uoble and patriotic
armies, and in which I am proud to have
been an humble participant,' i piaee as a
crowning victory the .harmonious assem
bling of that Convention, composed as it
was of representatives from every State
and Territory men who for years past
have been opposeu in principle uiiu.puiicr,
buf who, casting aside all prejudice and
