Excerpt from Speech of S. Teackle Wallis, Esq.: As Delivered at the Maryland Institute, on Friday Evening, February 1st, 1861 But, my fellow-citizens, I have a feeling in addressing you this even ing, Which overcomes all consciousness of embarrassment, and that is the feeling of intense, personal indignation at the position in which I am compelled to stand before you, and in which you are here listening to what any of us may have to say to you. (applause) The Governor of the State of Maryland, who would have been at best your servant, if he had been chosen by your suffrages so, and applause) but who was not chosen by your suffrages and yet insists on being your master has given it to be understood, that those who do not agree with him in thinking it the bounden duty of Maryland to be voiceless and motionless in this great crisis of the Republic - you and I and every honorable and patriotic gentleman around me - are but a horde of disorganizers and disunionists - not fit to be heard upon the question of saving your country and mine.
