Gentlemen of tlie Board ,of Aldermen
of the City of Wilmington: -
It is with profound emotion thatf I
receive this mark of confidence at your
handa. Please accept my sine ire
thanks. . ... .
I will promise to devote my entire
time and ability in tho discharge of the
duties vou have imposed upon mo.
Coming, as we do, into the control of
tne weiiare oi inis city lor mo nxc iwo
years, uninformed in tho details and
machinery of tho last administration,
and utterly ignorant ot the wants of the
future, it would ill become roe "now to
make any suggestions or recommenda
tions! to you. At some future time,
when wo all have studied tho re
quirements of our position, I will freely
offer to von and receivo from you
any suggestions that may bo for the
benefit ot tho city. I trust, howevar, I
may be pardoned for saving, from my
experience as sheriff of New Hanover
county, in collecting tho revenue of this
city ad county for nine years, that by
a thorough system of equalization of
taxation and a strict enforcement of the
existing laws for the collection of the
revenues of the city,' the income to the
treasury of the city will be largely in
creased, the burdens of taxation will be
equalized, and the present rat?s of tax
ation will be decreased. I am satisfied
that some interests are taxed too heavi
ly, some too little, and many none at
all. The true interests of this city con
sists, first, in properly collecting what
ever money is actually required to keep
the credit of the city above reproach;
then in judiciousK improving and beau
tifying tho city. By a thorough under
standing with the Board of Audit and
Finance. I am quite sure that object
can be obtained. The duties ol your
department are separate and distinct
from mine, and must be well defined..
You are tho Legislature and I am the
Executive. It is your duty to make
laws, and mine to see them executed,
and I here pledge to yon that every oi
dinanco ym in your wtednm may see
fit to make shall be rigidly enforced.
And t4 my fsllow-ciUicsa of the city
of Wilmington, represented here by
this immense audience, cllected from
all parts of the city, consisting fcef ail
classes, colors and conditions, language
fails me in expressing to yon the pro
found emotions that swell i my heart
near to; overflowing. I -have lived in
your midst, boy and man. for near
sixty years. I have by your kind suf
frages filled many offices of honor and
trust. My whole private career has
been open to your inspection, and J am
proud to believe that this great enthu
siasm yoa manifest hero .to-day in my
behalf is nothing' more nor le3 than
the warm approval on (your part of my
past career as a private . man and my
record as a public man. As such I
receive it with: profound appreciations
Now, to .my . colored fellow-citizens.
The very great interest that you mani
fested all over this city in my behalf in
this canvass, and that, too,! without ona
tinge of party feeling, touches me deep
ly a"nd is very dear to me. It shows
that you truly know me and arc willing
to trust mo implicjtly. Since you
have been, made Jree men I have
A'atched your progress with solicitude.
I;havo seen you suddenly endowed
with the great privileges of citizenship
and suffrage, and that, too, profoundly
unprepared for it. I havo seen you
struggling to discern the difference
botween liberty and license. I
have seen your appreciation of the
proper course lor' you to pur
sue. I have seen you steadily, in
dustriously and almost unaided pursa
ing the onward course, and in many
cases the aid that was offered you was
pernicious and to your injury. ! I - have
seen you eagerly grasp the aid offered
you to educate your children and im
prove your. condition. ' I havo seen you
unaidecl erectmany and costly build
ings for religious worship. I have seen
alt these, and I seen all your short
comings, and I firmly bclievo I in1 and
have great hopes of your future. And
I say to you now that in this conrt o:
justice 5'ou shall have as equal and ex
act rights as the best in the land. And
.1 pledge to you that in all your effortsjto
improve your condition and to elevate
yourselves in the scale of manhood you
shall have my earnest support, both in
my public and private capacity' It
sihali be my earnest endeavor to culti
vate and stimulate a cordial and kindly
intercourse between your race and
Now, my friends, one and all, accept
my heartfelt thanks.
