A Quote by Robert C. Winthrop on dignity, education, ignorance, justice, safety, slavery, and welfare

Justice to them, the welfare of the States in which they live, the safety of the whole Republic, the dignity of the elective franchise, - all alike demand that the still remaining bonds of ignorance shall be unloosed and broken, and the minds as well as the bodies of the emancipated go free.
