1

Frankly, I don't think, as I get around the State, and

2

I've been getting around this State for a good many years

3

and mixing with all kind of people, I think you are going

4

to have difficulty in getting any constitution, perhaps,

5

adopted. There is no real -- you take in 1867 -r and I

6

don't know what would have happened in 1864 — in 1867,

7

you can guess, for instance, the reason in 1864, of in-

8

cluding that provision I mentioned about the Declaration,

9

or out of the Declaration of Independence, it paraphrases

10

and gives somewhat the same substance. I don't find any

11

great feeling among the people for any change in our

12

Constitution, except a few vocal people that are perhaps

13

very much agitated by certain individual things, and

14

frankly, I was a little bit surprised that the Legislature

15

even went as far as it did at this particular time, as -

16

close as they are.

This is an opinion that I have, but I express

18

it as coming in contact with a lot of people. I deal with

19

a lot of people besides people in agriculture, people in

20

commerce in the city included, and everybody else, but

21

I don't find any feeling about that.
