the shoots that spring from their grave we
are to weave a bower that shall oversha

ceedings will pass in review before the
power that elected us, and it will be for the
people to. decide, whether the blacks are
elevated upon a ground that we cannot
reach. Sir, we, all of us, entered into the
government subject to the iinpl.fd condi

from an association of ideas. Slavery and
