It possible, then, to make that Inter

Wrhy should there not be a patient
confidence in the ultimate Justice of
the people? Is there any better or

If the Almlghtly Ruler of nations,
with his eternal truth and Justice,

yours of the south that truth and
that Justice will surely prevail by
the Judgment of this great tribunal
of the American people.
My countrymen, one and all, think
calmly and well upon this whole sub
ject. Nothing valuable can be lost
by taking time. If there be an ob

haste to a step which you would
never take deliberately, that object

I am loath to close. We are not
enemies, but friends. We must not
be enemies. Though passion may
have strained It must not break our
bonds of affection. The mystic
chords of memory, stretching from
every battlefield and patriot grave to
every living heart and hearthstone
all over this broad land, will yet
swell the chorus of the union when
again touched, as surely they will be,
by the better angels of our nature.
