SPEECH ON RECONSTRUCTION.

DELIVERED IN THE House of REPRESENTATIVES, DEC. 21, 1865.

MR CHAIRMAN,+I should be glad, if it meet the sense of those members who are present, to make some remarks upon the general question before the House; but I do not wish to trespass at all upon their disposition in regard to this matter. I do not know, however, that there will be a better opportunity to say what little I have to say than is now offered; and if the House shall indicate no other wish, I

will proceed to say it.
