Lvered at the Cotton States and In- h<

n November 30th 1895: P1
Mr. President, Your Excellency, La- no
es and Gentlemen of Georgia and ol
y own Follow Citizens; To say that ti
e thank you for this hearty welcomo p
ems cold and indifferent from a p,
other to her daughter, for it has bi
ien truly said that Georgia is really n
i daughter of South Carolina, and she ft
is a daughter indeed. (Groan.) You ti
may groan, but yet she is not ashamed w
of her daughter. (Applause.) South o,
Carolina is proud of her daughter, ti
(applause) and sho stands bore to-day ft
to bear evidence for what we did in ti
past; that when we nurtured this in- hi
fant ; when we protected hor from the ti
Indian and Spaniard, it was not In ti
vain we stand here to-day and say, In- ce
deed you do us proud. (Applause and h
cheers.) And now, his Excellency, it
the Governor, has seen lit to say that it
the Governor of South Carolina has no o
appreciation for her lovely daughters. ti
Why, sir, you don't know me. (Ap- T
- plause.) We have brought hero upon y
the soil of Georgia 265 of the fairest a
maidens that God Almighty ever cre- 1i
ated. (Applause.) They ar stamped it
with more purity than he has stamped 8
the lily; they are stamped with more il
beauty than ho has painted the rose- y
bud, and, sir, when I stand in the pros- g
once of these holy creatures; when I fi
stand hero and contemplate my own il
miserable self, I can only exclaim, B
" How unworthy a creature you are of at
one of these lovely women." (Ap- Ih
plause.) - That is my appreciation. g
Not lack of appreciation ; though pos- t)
sibly, some may say, too great an ap- h
preciation, but it cannot be. C
South Carolina is proud of her wo- d
men; she is proud of what they havo II
done in the past; she is proud of what p
they represent in tho'present; and she p
feels safe in what they will accoi- fl
plish and speak for her in the future. ft
This day has been set apai t as a day w
of 'Thaaksgiving by the Presidont of ti
the United States and by the Gov- G
ernors of the separato States in the i,
Union. We havO much, fellow citi- u
zens, to be thankful for, but South i
Carolina and Georglia stamped by their n;
individuality can Oxclaim wiithout any ci
degree of hypocr-isy or spirit of the ci
Pharisee, - We thank theo, oh ! T
.God, we arc not as other people are." T
( Thore is a characteristic individu- It
fality of the South Carolinian, that D
characteristic is not so great between aI
the South Carolinian and the Georgiatn rt
because we arc one people, and al- et
though divided by the Savannall, in w
the words of your own immortal Grady, c
" That is more of a bond thati a boun- g
dairy." (Applauso.) 01
We cannot forgot, as your Governor i
' said, you cannot forget, South o1
)lina cannot forgot, that whean she ti
oppwessed; when the hel of the bi
Ant bore heavily upon her, it was p!
3 strong arm of the Georgians that c1
amo to her rescuo in '76. We thank al
you for it. We thank you for What S
you have done in the past and we a
thank you for giving us this oppor
tunity of coming here and showing to I
the world the superiority of South tl
Why, the other- day 1 saw an intoar- ha
-view from a Yankee General, in which ii
he stated that the Southl was p~rogr-ess- hI
ing ; that tile South was imlproving, e:
except poor South Car-ol ina, and she b
was still feeling the cifects of seces- ft1
Ision. Yes, she feels it ; she feels the S
effects of the tribute shle pays to S,
the national government for- being r<4
whipped ; but whlen she pays it, she tI
pays it withl a praotest, and wvhen it is na
statted that she feels tile effects of di
secession it is ta-ue; but to-dlay, fellow bh
citizens, we stand and proclaim as our ci
own Pinckney did, that we still have C
" Millions for- defense but, not a cent
for- tr-ibuteo." South Carolina pays he
tr-ibute to no man and po State excep~t ye
that imposed upon her- by for-co of laiw oi
and of a strong hand ; but wve pay it, w
j and as we pay it we do not mnurmur-. But o1
the time has come fot- the South Car-o- at
linlan and every Southe-rner to tink ha
for- himself andl to speak for- himisel f and Ut
in the hlalls of Congress lot it be known la
that these Souther-n States ar-e in this p1
Union, a par-t of this Union aind by
the graco of God we propose to conltrol
this Unlion. (A voice, "That's r-ight.")
Why should it, not be r-ight? (Ap
plause.) \Vas it nlot riaght ian the past ? A
Was It not right under- tile tralining of,
yelur father-s? The training of states
manship that you r-eceived, the prin
\ciples they inculcated in you, ar-o they- J)
not just as dear- ais they wort- bcforoe m
1805? And, fellow citizens, thlis mi
Southland~ will blooml ill spite of tile ini
-marks of gener-als, in spite of the
r'oma$rks of judges hostile to us. It aa
scets now that over-y prlesidenltial can- dIC
didate of tihe Ropublli~can parLty fools it to
incumbent upon hiam to hit South to
Car-olina a lick. But fellow citizeans, Ir
tile result is thait South Carolina never- thi
has to go out of tile conflict for re- l
pair-s. (Great alplause.) Co
Now, fortunately. oura wor-ks ar-e hor-e TI.
to speak for themselves ;we ar-c not, a b
people to her1ald our vir-tues hoore tile vL
wor-ld ; we ar-e not a people to prao.-h

a people possessed of too amuch baass. 1)1
We have always had brains ; we have
*' always haad integrity ; we hlave always in

cors.) That speaks mere and1( soulnds tih
louder- than the beating of cy mbals over -
past triuanphs. dei
