Humiliating Appeals of Virginia.
The everlasting appeals of Virginia
are a source of profound humiliation to the people of this once majestic Commonwealth.
In the name of all that is proud and glorious in the past history of Virginia
, let us invoke her official representatives to appear no more as petitioners and suppliants at the bar of the John Brown
Administration, if the State
is to fall, let her at least fall with Roman dignity, and refrain from pilling up dishonor upon the graves of her dead, and causing the checks of her living to tingle with shame.
