THE STATUE MUST BE REMOVED
“Edward Everett re-delivered his oration on Daniel Webster, in front of the State House, on Tuesday afternoon last……….Mr. Everett was introduced, said – ‘No official action of ours was necessary to perpetuate the fame of ‘THE ADVOCATE AND DEFENDER O THE FUGITIVE SLAVE BILL ! — nevertheless], ‘it has seemed eminently fit and proper (!) that we should honor the memory of one whose name and fame must be forever associated with the historic glories (!!) of our Commonwealth, ‘ … meaning the aforesaid ADVOCATE AND DEFEENDER OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE BILL! Let this be remembered. IT MUST BE REMOVED !
