Also reproduced by Michael Vorenberg in Final Freedom (2001). Vorenberg writes: "For a moment there was only a disbelieving hollow silence. Then the House exploded in cheers. Members threw their hats to the roof, caught them, and smashed them against their desks." Charles Douglass wrote to his father, abolitionist Frederick Douglass: "I wish that you could have been here. Such rejoicing I never before witnessed . . . (white people I mean)."
