Gentlemen of the Assembly: - For the honor which I have this day received from you, I extend my most heartfelt thanks.

In the fulfillment of my duties of speaker of this assembly, I shall many times be obliged to ask, and I trust to receive, the kindest indulgence at your hands; and I ask this, both on account of my inexperience and the desire that is within me to do equal and exact justice to all. Under no condition, driven by no stress of circumstances, will I depart from that strict impartiality which should characterize all the acts and decisions of a presiding officer. · And at the opening of this session permit me to say that when we became members of this legislature, we undertook to give, and the people of this state have the right to expect from us, a strict but not niggardly economy in the administration of all the affairs of state that may come before us. We undertook to give, and the people of this state have a right to expect, the same painstaking care, the same scrupulous honor, that we would give to our own private and most important affairs, so that when our work is done, and garnered into that mighty sheaf of the years, that shall never be unbound, it may remain an enduring monument of the utmost fidelity and the highest integrity, honorable alike to ourselves and the state; and further, as barmony is the strength of all institutions, may harmony be the cloud by day and the star by night that shall guide us in all our deliberations.
