Consequently since by their kind offices in our behalf, we have become sufficiently aroused and developed to assume the defense of our own cause; they should be content to exhibit the truth of their philanthropy by aiding us in carrying out the measures we shall deem proper to adopt. In conclusion we hope that wisdom may shine upon your deliberations, inspire you with harmony of action, and direct your decisions to the welfare of our race. And may the approving smile of heaven rest upon you all in thought, word and deed, and preserve you to a long and happy life, Mr. President and Delegates.
