Current Page Transcription [history]
Mr. J. Sella Martin, of Massachusetts, thought Mr. Sumner had as good a chance for the Philadelphia nomination for president as any other man. He was opposed to the Cincinnati convention because he thought it was to be the opening wedge to divide the Republican party. He did not think recent converts to Republicanism as good as such well-tried Republicans as Mr. Sumner, and was opposed to hob-nobbing with men we did not know, and had no reason to believe would assist in enforcing the civil rights of the colored people.
Mr. Burch was in favor of Mr. Pinchback's amendment. He thought it should pass, to show that the convention was not opposed to Mr. Sumner; that the colored people still had confidence in that great champion of human rights.
