Disunion by force is treason.
There are no necessary evils in government. Its evils exist only in its abuses.
I feel in the depths of my soul that it is the highest most sacred and most irreversible part of my obligation to preserve the union of these states although it may cost me my life.
There is nothing that I shudder at more than the idea of a separation of the Union. Should such an event ever happen which I fervently pray God to avert from that date I view our liberty gone.
War is a blessing compared with national degradation.
