8. W[illiam] D. Kelley, The South—Its Resources and Wants. By Hon. Wm. D. Kelley, Embracing His Address to the Citizens of New Orleans, Address at Montgomery, Ala., and His Address to His Constituents (Washington, DC: Union Republican Congressional Executive Committee, ca. 1868). (20 p.)

Three complete speeches plus excerpts from a fourth, all of them enthusiastically promoting economic development for the South and civil rights for African Americans. “Freedom establishes the fact that a good man is better than a bad one; that a wise man is better than a fool; that a learned man is better than one who is content to pass his life in ignorance; that an active man will win the race and take the prize from an indolent one.”
