Common-wealth, March 1, 1852), and in a letter to L. V. Bell (Commonwealth, July 14, 1852). It declared that Massachusetts denounces the iniquitous project in its inception, and in every stage of its progress; in its means and its end, and in all the purposes and pretences of its authors. A solemn earnestness such as befits a great crisis in human affairs pervaded the assembly. This was the last demonstration of resistance to the annexation, or of protest against it, in which the representative Whig politicians of Massachusetts took part.
