personality and the political peculiari

Thoughtful people have begun to

who is the very antithesis of the Re

We present him as a citizen of the

states lies outside the boundaries of
his patriotism and affection.
The southern states might well re
joice to see him in the presidential
chair. He is blood of their blood and
bone of their bone. In mighty de

was his true blade that slew outright,
once and forever, the proposition to

people who were struggling face to

under free institutions.
Not only the states which have a
right to cast electoral votes would
be blessed by such a president. but

bless his name. He believes in the
