I don't blame the South an atom. They have been driven to desperation by such lunatics as Garrison and Phillips, and these men ought to be hung for it. ... If there is a war, I hope you and every other Black Republican will be made to go and fight for the niggers all you want to. . . . You like the niggers so well you'll marry one of them yet. .. .And, I want to see those hot-headed Abolitionists put into the front rank, and shot first.
