Excerpt: ...sooner or later, be accomplished, if we desire to enjoy and maintain our present rank as a city."(7) It was apparent that if she was to have the railroad, she must build it herself. The South was not cut off from a market in the North so much as Cincinnati was cut off from a Southern market.(-) She could, therefore, expect nothing more than moral support from the South. She knew it would be a great boon for the regions through which it would run; and with this argument.she won the hearts of the people of Central Kentucky, who had long wanted an outlet for their timber and minerals and farm products.(H) If the city would only go after it, the city chamber of commerce said, "there is a greater extent of country accessible to Cincinnati manufactures, than is within the exclusive reach of any other city in the United States."(10) Te problem, then, of Cincinnati was to get her wealth turned into the right direction.

An editorial in the Cincinnati Daily Gazette, April IP, says, "The railroad to Cincinnati is not a necessity to the South. Che has connections with other places on the Ohio and Mississippi. It is necessary only to the immediate country through which it will pass, and to Cincinnati, which will receive the great commercial benefits, and whose commercial supremacy depends on building this, road." A similar idea is expressed at an earlier time in Railroad Proceedings and A.ddress of Fulton nnd Vicinity to the People of Ohio. (Faphlet) 0.
