Стр. 22 - No more shall the war-cry sever, Or the winding rivers be red; They banish our anger forever, When they laurel the graves of our dead. Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the judgment day; Love and tears for the Blue; Tears and love for the Gray.

Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog In public duty and in private thinking...
Стр. 30 - Observe good faith and justice towards all Nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.

Стр. 57 - Resolved, That the Secretary communicate these resolutions to the House of Representatives and transmit a copy thereof to the family of the deceased. Resolved, That as a further mark of respect to the memory of the deceased Representative the Senate do now adjourn.
