to each other, as became themselves and the occasion—differ-
ing often and earnestly, with the warmth of conscious truth,
but with the forbearance which belongs to virtuous life and
education. May I add that another—one other duty belongs
to this relation : That we take this Constitution to the people
for their sanction and approval; that we explain it truly and
patiently. This duty we do owe to the State, to each other,
and to ourselves. It it be done, and faithfully, this Consti-
tution the people will pionounce "good." It has been
wrought into form amid the chaos resulting from political
convulsions. It cannot have vital force hut by the fiat of
the popular will.
Continue, then, your labors, without faltering, to the end;
and, betide what may, we shall enjoy the solace that we have
fought "the good fight," that we "have kept the faith."
With my thanks again, gentlemen, I take leave of you.
Farewelll farewelll
The President then, at 2 o'clock and 30 minutes P. M.,
pronounced the Convention adjourned sine die.
