Excerpt from General Garfield as a Statesman and Orator: Paragraphs From His Speeches in Congress and on the Stump
We can hardly realize that this is the same people, and these the same halls, where now scarcely a man can be found who will ven ture to do more than falter out an apology for slavery, protesting in the same breath that he has no love for the dying tyrant. None I believe, but that man of supernal boldness from the City of New York (mr. Fernando Wood), has ventured this session to raise his voice in favor of slavery for its own sake. He still sees in its feat ures the reﬂection of beauty and divinity, and only he. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations.
