Qiiaeh'e. the Pt y orr, indeed ?ny and ah
of our clieiii-hcd cirt-le, their chridr? v, ot
even their children's children, to come t<
me ?fi of old, ti e stern, feelit.gs of duty and
conviction would melt aa snow liefore th?
g? nia sun, and I believe I would strip -?\
<>wn childi* n that they might be sheltered;
and \et they call mc barba rinn, vandal,
and monster, nnd all the epithets that lan?
guage cnn invent that are significant o'
malignity and bate. All I prtteud to 'say,
<>n earth as in heaven, man moat submit to
iomo arbiter. Ile must not ihrow ? ff his
?dVgiat.ce to hisJGoverr.mtnt or hi? God
wi-bout jiuu reason and cause. Tito South
bad no cause; not even a pretext. Ind? ed,
by lier ur justifiable ceurse, she has thrown
away the proud history of the past, *nd
laid open lier fair ccuntry to the tread ol
devastating wr.r. She bantered and bullied
us to tlie conuieL Lind wo- dcclii ed,
bettie, America wou'J Lave sunk bick, j
coward and craven, meriting tko contempt j
of ill mankind. Am a nation, ?rd were i
forced to accept battle, and ll?t4 once
begun, it bas gone on till the wor baa ss

"burly burly sometimes- stand aglii-a?. 1

hat I never lorgot one kind look or greot*

I nid it that our common country shoul?
not perish in infamy and dishonor. 1 am
if?:rri*-d, have a wife and six children,
tvitig in Lancaster, Ohio. My course hoi
hem an eveiit'ul one", but I hope when tho
..louds of angeland pasaion nie dispersed,
and truth emerges bright and clear, you
-nd all who knew me in early years will
not blush that we were once dear friends.
Tell K ita, for me, that I hope she may
Jive to lealze that the doctrine of "seces?
sion'' is as monstrous in our civil code aa
<ii'obedience was in the Divine law. And, '
-hould the fortunes of war ever bring 3'ou,
or your sisters or any of our old clique
m.der the shelter of my authority, I do not
believe they will have cause to regret it.
Give my love to your children, and tho as?
surance of my respects to your honorable
husband. Truly, W. T. SHERMAN.
