That wherever Republicans have betrayed colored constituencies, we recommend that better men be elected to succeed them, and especially do we pledge ourselves to elect successors in Congress, wherever we have the power, to every Republican who voted against or dodged the supplementary civil rights bill recently introduced into the United States Senate by Hon. Charles Sumner; and also successors to those who shall show a satisfactory record on the civil rights bill now in the United States House of Representatives.
The address on civil rights was then read and adopted unanimously.
The report of the committee on organization was also read and adopted.
The convention then, on motion of Mr. Pinchback, took a recess until half-past seven in the evening.
