Southern Representation Again

March 14, 1866

A Mr.McClurg proposes to provide, by joint resolution, that when the Southern States, or any of them, shall, either through Convention or Legislature, have complied with certain conditions which he proposes, they or it shall be entitled to representation in Congress. As the resolution has been adopted by no one in the world but Mr.McClurg, we do not think it worth the space it would occupy.
