s our duty and interest shall demand, and I do not doubt the people of Maryland are ready to go with the people of those States for weal or woe. I fully agree with all that you have said as to the necessity for protection to the rights of the South; and my sympathies are entirely with the gallant people of Mississippi, who stand ready to resent any infringement of those rights. But I earnestly hope they will act with prudence as well as with courage. Let us show moderation as well as firmness, and be unwilling to resort to extreme measures until necessity shall leave us no choice. I am unable to inform you when the Legislature of this State will be called together, for until I can perceive the necessity for such a step I am not willing to awake the apprehension and excite the alarm which such a call at the present time could not fail to create. I have the honor to be, with great respect, your obedient servant, Thos. H. Hicks. Hon. A. H. Handy, Commissioner of Mississippi.
