The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
"As a pilot, I have used my best exertions to keep afloat our ship of State, and shall be glad to resign my trust at the appointed time to another pilot more skillful and successful than I may prove.
In every case, and at all hazards, the Government must be perpetuated.
Relying, as I do, upon the Almighty Power and encouraged as I am by these resolutions which you have just read, with the support which I receive from Christian men, I shall not hesitate to use all the means at my control to secure the termination of this rebellion, and will hope for success.
