--That whilst Virginia is making offers of peace and compromise, the North still maintains her position of defiance.
We have offered the olive branch.
The North responds with armed men and ships-of-war, the implements of subjugation, and not of love and peace.
The occasion demands prompt action.
Vote for men who desire prompt action.
Randolph, Steger, and Robertson.
