  "SAD MISADVENTURE OF THE COPPERHEAD DELEGATION TO RICHMOND."  
 
 
Harper's Weekly
 
March 14, 1863
   
 
 

“If you repudiate the debt you have contracted, and abandon the government you have established, and recant vows, and break pledges, and eat dirt, it is well; we shall be charmed; the movement will suit us perfectly; and, although we shall not exactly respect the actors in that affair, yet we shall not be unwilling to trade with you—holding our noses a little—and to show you all suitable civilities— but at a proper distance.”—Richmond Inquirer.
