Eight pages. Mr. Schenck, the speaker, replies to Mr. Wood concerning the discussion to expel Mr. Long: "Being neither against the war nor for the war, he would send commissioners to Richmond to treat with those arrayed in arms against the country, to offer them terms of peace. He preaches a 'new gospel of peace,' of which he is the great apostle". "The gentleman and his friends, then, are willing and propose to crawl on their bellies to the feet of rebels and insurgents in arms, and looking up piteously to say 'Oh, our masters, notwithstanding all your scoffing and scorn, and though you may spurn us from your presence, we implore you to say whether you will not graciously agree to make some terms with us". "I cannot comprehend this abasement". Bookseller Inventory #
