                            NEw YoIu, February 20, 1890.
  At the banquet of the Ohio Society of New York last evening,
the President of the Society was, by unanimous vote, directed to
ask you to furnish to the Society for publication a copy of your
admirable paper on the passage through the House of Repre-
sentatives of the United States of the Thirteenth Amendment to
the Constitution. In performance of this duty, I beg leave to
present to you their request.
  Let me add, personally, that this formal expression was sup-
plemented individually by every one of those present with
whom it was my fortune to converse. I am sure that I speak
for all present in expressing my individual appreciation of the
greatness and historic value of that action of which you were so
largely the inspiration, and in which you were the foremost
                       Yours, very truly,
                                     WAGER SWAYNE.
Hon. 3. M. ASHLEY.

          President Ohio Society of New York,
                   195 Broadway.
  Herewith please find copy of my address as delivered before
your Society at the fifth annual banquet on the 19th inst.
  It gives me pleasure to comply with a request in which is
conveyed so complimentary an approval by the Society and your-
self of the address.
  I only regret that I did not have time to speak more in detail
of the personality of the immortal twenty-four who voted with
us, and thus made possible the passage of the Thirteenth
                       Truly yours,
                                         J. M. ASHLEY.
