Title: Ratification
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

Twenty seven states have now ratified the Fifteenth Amendment. Twenty eight is the required number to make it part of the fundamental law of the land. Two or three more States are certain. The governor of Nebrasa has promised that he would convene the Legislatue of that State whenever her vote would be decisive. The story is then told. Let the Democracy wail and bite the dust, but the principles of truth and justice will triumph. We will see now who will court favor of the "nigger" most, Republicans or Democrats. No doubt the leaders inthe Democratic ranks will become very much attached to the "d-----d" nigger about election times. A queer party that!
