Стр. 6 - I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I have never voluntarily borne arms against the United States since I have been a citizen thereof; that I have voluntarily given no aid, countenance, counsel, or encouragement to persons engaged in armed hostility thereto; that I have neither sought nor accepted nor attempted to exercise the functions of any office whatever, under any authority or pretended authority in hostility to the United States...
Стр. 108 - The question with me is, not whether you have a right to render your people miserable ; but whether it is / not your interest to make them happy. It is not, what a lawyer tells me I may do ; but what humanity, reason, and justice, tell me I ought to do.

Стр. 142 - I would suggest that, upon reflection, it seems to me that committee had better be seven on the part of the Senate, and nine on the part of the House, and I say seven on the part of the Senate because we now have a committee of seven, and I think it would be better to continue those same gentlemen. I suggest it, and perhaps the Senator from Rhode Island will agree to it.
Стр. 116 - ... tells me I may do, but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do. Is a politic act the worse for being a generous one?
