The President addressed the Senate as follows:

I understand it has been the custom in this body for the presiding officer to say a word of greeting. Following this custom, I want to speak very briefly.

The Constitution of the State of New York provides that the Lieutenant-Governor shall be the presiding officer of this honorable body. A majority of the electorate of the State of New York at the last election gave to me this great honor. With it I realize the responsibilities that have come.

There are many questions that have got to be solved, and which demand the attention not alone of the legislative body of the State, but of various State departments. These questions that come before you I know you will solve to the best of your ability and with an eye single to the welfare of the citizenry of the State. In this task I pledge you my support. I know we are going to have a very delightful and happy time together, and after the session is over I want the acquaintanceships that are formed here to ripen into everlasting friendships, and that our association together shall be a cherished memory.

The Clerk will call the roll.

The Clerk called the roll and the following Senators responded:
