Then taking the stand, amid prolonged cheers, Mr. Holt spoke as follows: Judge Pirtle: I beg you to be assured that I am most thankful for this distinguished and flattering welcome, and for every one of the kind words which have just fallen from your lips, as I am for the hearty response they have received.

We have sought, and only sought, the undisturbed enjoyment of the inherent and indefeasible right of self-government — a right which freemen can ne
