Excerpt from A Paper Containing a Statement and Vindication of Certain Political OpinionsWith a strong sense of the duty of reserve in times of great public excitement, and the consciousness that a private citizen's conduct and opinions are of no interest beyond a very limited circle, I venture to make a personal appeal within that circle.I am glad of the chance of speaking to my personal friends, and think it a duty, to my character and to my family, to put in a distinct and permanent form a brief and perfectly candid statement of my conduct and opinions in relation to the troubles of the country. If the irrationalism of the hour should soon or ever pass by, and law and good order, as guaranteed by the Constitution, and a healthy public opinion be restored, this paper may serve as a private memorial of feelings and opinions of which my friends will have no reason to be ashamed. If not, and our doom of ruin be realized, it will be of little moment what I or any one else now think or say.As this justification (if I may so describe it) is strictly personal, no apology is needed - certainly none to those who are interested from familiar and social relations - for referring briefly to the past.Born and educated in Pennsylvania, my whole active life, excepting brief periods of absence in the public service, has been passed here. I have no private interests or family connections within the limits of the Confederate States.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
