Not only do I pray for it, on the score of human dignity, but I can clearly forsee that nothing but the rooting out of slavery can perpetuate the existence of our union, by consolidating it in a common bond of principle.

Ich bete nicht nur dafür, was die Menschenwürde angeht, sondern ich kann auch klar vorhersehen, dass nichts anderes als das Herauswurzeln der Sklaverei die Existenz unserer Vereinigung verewigen kann, indem sie in einem gemeinsamen Grundsatzverbund gefestigt wird.

לא רק אני מתפלל על זה, על כבוד האדם, אבל אני יכול לראות בבירור כי שום דבר מלבד השתרשות מתוך העבדות יכול להנציח את קיומו של האיחוד שלנו, על ידי איחוד זה בתוך הקשר המשותף של העיקרון.
