of conscious truth, but with the forbearance which be-
longs to virtuous life and education. May I add that an-
other duty belongs to this relation—that we take the con-
stitution to the people for their sanction and approval,
that we explain it truly and patiently. This duty we owe
to the State, to each other and to ourselves. If it be done
faithfully, this constitution the people will pronounce
good. It has been wrought into form amid the chaos re-
sulting from political convulsions. It cannot have vital

what may, we shall enjoy the solace that we have fought
the good fight, that we have kept the faith. With my
thanks, gentlemen, I take leave of you. Farewell, fare-
well.

gavel and proclaimed the Constitutional Convention ad-

chair, and that Col. M. Y. Kidd act as secretary, which
was agreed to.
After the interchange of parting salutations, the mem-
bers then slowly dispersed.
