Transcript 62 ADDRESS OE SAMUEL FIELDEN. trovert much that has been asserted here in my particular case. Your honor, I have worked at hard labor since I was eight years of age. I went into a cotton factory when I was eight years old, and I have worked continually since, and there has never been a time in my history that I could have been bought or paid into a single thing by any man for any purpose which I did not believe to be true. To contradict the lie that was published in connection with the bill by the grand jury charging us with murder, I wish to say that I have never received one cent for agitating. When I have gone out of the city I have had my expenses paid. But often when I have gone into communities, when I would have to depend upon those communities for paying my way, I have often come back to this city with money out of my pocket, which I had earned by hard labor, and I had to pay for the privilege of mv agitation out of the little money I might have in my possession. Today as the beautiful autumn su*n kisses with balmy breeze the cheek of every free man, I stand here never to bathe my head in its rays again.! I have loved my fellowmen as I have loved myself. I have hated trickerv, dishonesty, and injustice. The nineteenth century commits the crime of killing its best friend. It will live to repent of it. But, as I have said before, if it will do any good, I freely give myself up. I trust the time will come when there will be a better understanding, more intelligence, and, above the mountains of iniquity, wrong and corruption, I hope the sun of righteousness and truth and justice will come to bathe in its balmy light an emancipated world. | II thank your honor for your attention.
