SENATORS: The hour of adjournment has arrived, but I will venture to detain you a moment while I return my thanks for the indulgence and courtesies I have received from you, and for the expression of your good feeling which has been conveyed to me by the resolution of the Senate.

At a time like this generous men forget the light differences which have arisen, and remember only those things which it is pleasant to recall. Albeit, not so constituted as to be able to be indifferent to your discussions, nor to the fate of the measures before you, I have striven to hold the scales fairly, and where I have failed it should be imputed to human frailty and not to any deliberate intention.

I have been a witness of the zeal, the integrity, the independent and patriotic spirit with which you have performed your duties. If your action shall encounter criticism among the people, it must be upon public grounds and as to the wisdom of your course. You certainly cannot be accused of carelessness nor neglect of duty, nor of having failed to give to all important subjects a careful and deliberate consideration.

Senators, I bid you farewell, with the sincere wish that you may have a full reward of happiness, prosperty, and public honor; and now, in accordance with the joint resolution of the Senate and Assembly, I declare the Senate to be adjourned without day.

HENRY A. GLIDDEN,
Clerk of the Senate.
