Excerpt from Address of Hon. William H. Haywood, Jr.: To the People of North Carolina

Fortunately for me, those Opinions, so far as they looked forward to its ultimate consequences, on the harmony of the paity, or the welfare of the Republic, I am no longer under the necessity of supporting by labored argu ments. For good or evil, the law has passed. If it should be repealed3 or modified at the next session, that will be of itself a complete vindication of myopposition to it at the present. If it should be permitted to remain infor’ce in the form that I was required to vote upon it, then time will soon determine whether my opinion of it was right or wrong. I abi’de the result Without fear; yet, if I know myself, without a wish to see evil. Come of it, merely for the sake of claim ing hereafter, on my part, the merit of political sagacity for my resistance to it.
