"WHEREAS," begins this somber Lincoln assassination broadside, "Our City has been plunged into sudden and deep grief by the murder of our beloved fellow countryman and honored Chief Magistrate, ABRAHAM LINCOLN. And Whereas. And Whereas. therefore be it Resolved. That we shall ever hold sacred his irreproachable example in public life, joining prudence with power, firmness with leniency, patriotism with humanity, wisdom with religion. That we deplore the murderous assault upon our distinguished Secretary of State, the Honorable WILLIAM H. SEWARD. That with new ardor we pledge our property, our time, and our lives to the cause which has now laid new obligations upon us. That in the cry for punishment which goes up all over our land it shall be our effort to temper vengeance by mercy." Signed in type by Hackett as president of the common council and by Bailey as mayor of the board of aldermen. Very early and scarce.
