Address of the President Pro Tem. Gentlemen of the Senate, Called upon unexpectedly to occupy the place of the presiding officer of this Board, I should be wanting in sensibility not to appreciate your kindness, and in gratitude, not to express my thanks for the distinction you have conferred on me. Unskilled as I am in presiding over a deliberative assembly, I must, gentlemen, bespeak in advance your indulgence, for any mistakes, or unintentional errors I may commit in the discharge of the duties devolving upon me by accepting the office, to which your suffrages have called me; and shall confidently expect your assistance in every case where it may be necessary. Under these impressions, I accept the office & shall endeavor to perform the services incident to the extent of my ability.
