quicker than she went out. Do you ask how that will be done ? I will tell you. More than 300,000 sturdy, determined men in New England
and New York have alreadyvoted themselves farms there,
and they are going on to take possession.
It will then be an easy matter to vote her back into the Union
We should doubt very much the ‘"sobermindedness"’ and ‘"careful reflection"’ of men who indulge such a speculation.
