Time deserts all who do not appreciate its value. Strike promptly, and time becomes your invaluable ally; strike slowly, gradually, prospectively, and time goes over to the enemy. Only eleven senators on one vote and ten on another voted against the alternative of gradual emancipation. Among them were Fessenden, Grimes, Harlan of Iowa, Lane of Indiana, Pomeroy, and Wade.

When Sumner suggestedclared against the amendment as likely to involve a sacrifice of the bill, and it received only five votes—those of Brown, Lane of Kansas, Morgan, Pomeroy, and Sumner. Even Hale waived his conscientious scruples and went for expediency, and Wilson a House Feb. 20, 1866, and the Senate March 2. A few days later the question came up directly on a resolution introduced by Lane of Kansas, to recognize the State government of Arkansas initiated under the President's direction, when Sumner addressed al for caution and prudence in a first step of vast consequence, and for waiting on events.
