Current Page Transcription [history]

F. I., Cardozo seemed to think that speech making and sentiment expressing was just about the business which had brought the members together, it being understood that all the distinguished luminaries of the country were convoked for no other purpose.

A cross fire of repartee took place between the speaker and J. Harralson, in which the latter agreed not to open his mouth if his opponent would do the same, saying, in reference to the distinguished luminaries, that the most of the members here, in their own minds, thought themselves distinguished, much as the world might not be disposed to accord that fact, and if an evening was set aside too many would be willing to class themselves as of distinction. For himself, he might do some spouting, too, by and by.

The motion prevailed, and a committee of three members on address were appointed, and consisted as follows: Messrs. Chester, Ruffin and Harralson.

The convention then adjourned until nine o'clock this morning.
