  "LINCOLN IS RATHER INDISPOSED--THE EFFECTS OF AN OVERDOSE OF BRITISH NEUTRALITY."  
 
 
Southern Punch
 
March 12, 1864
   
 
 
Mr. Bull
Well, sir, you would persist in going to war without consulting me at all, and now that there is a prospect of your being badly whipped, you get sulkey at me, and declare that my neutrality is the cause of it. Mr. Abraham, do you take me for a fool?
Abraham.
I'll tell you what, Mr. Bull, you got me into this scrape; Exeter Hall is to blame for this; I should never have bothered my head a- bout niggars, if I had not listened to you. I guess before long you'll acknowledge the nigger Confederacy, and open a free trade in niggers and cot- ton. It makes me sick to think about it.
