Excerpt from Defence of the Republican Party: Speech of Hon. Henry Wilson, of Massachusetts, on the President's Message, in the Senate of the United States, December 17, 1856 But the Senator from Ohio [ml Puss] under took to break this charge, the other day, by tell ing us, on this side of the Chamber, that if our positions were as we stated them to be, the Pres ident could not have intended this attack upon us that he meant it for the little organization of Abolitionists in the North. I was surprised that the Senator should have invented such an excuse for the Chief Magistrate. I tell the Senator, and I tell other Senators, that this excuse will not do. The President intended to arraign the electors who voted for Fremont; his words do not apply to the Garrison Abolitionists, or to that class of radical Abolitionists who supported Gerrit Smith for the Presidency.
