Spragno is As pure a woman As lives and suffered incredibly to keep her Good name and her children s. Conkling pays the highest kind of Eulogy to chief Justice Chase of whom he says " he was one of Tho grandest figures produced in our he says if there was gratitude of Tho commonest kind among the people of the Laud they would Rush to his daughter s Defenso instead of assuming the meanest to be True concerning her.
