Reunion of the Army of the Tennessee — A Long and Sensible Speech from Gen. Grant.
"The President urged the cultivation of intelligence among the people in regard to political matters, and said, 'If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon's, but between patriotism and intelligence on one side and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.

Let us all labor for more security of free thought, free speech, a free press and pure morals, unfettered religious sentiments and equal rights and privileges of all men irrespective of nationality, color or religion.'"
