Sherman, chairman of the Senate finance committee, made a speech, Feb. 27, 1868, in which, taking ground against Edmunds and New England senators generally, he maintained the right of the government to redeem the principal of the debt in existing

Among Republicans openly protesting in 1880 against General Grant's candidacy were President Woolsey, Thurlow Weed, Murat Hastead, E. R. Hoar, 1880. No State was so fixed against a third term for General Grant as Massachusetts, where, in 1880, the Republican State convention by a large majority chose delegates to the national convention w pleaded most earnestly with Sumner to keep aloof from the secession of 1872, became a seceder in 1880, and supported Hancock against Garfield.
