LETTER FROM PETER COOPER
TO HORATIO SEYMOUR
- NEW YORK, August 18th 1808
To THE Hos. HORATIO SEYMOUR :
My Dear .Sir the last letter I. had the
hfinor to address to .you, I had the pleasure
to thank you• for the ,pronipt 'answer to 'e
former letter, and for the assurance-I re
ceived that ."we agreed in the. end to bo
realized, namely, the restoration .of the
' Union and the, preservation of •the Consti

. that I then
„ stated„that,l was.so deeply inipressed - with
the absolute necessity of maintaining- the
Union and the Constitution that I desired
to see all the powers that GodNind , nature
had given , to us brought into requisition to
save our country from being dissevered and
made the_:stiort of foreign and domestic
I feared then, as - Clear now, the danger
- of our being drawn into error by men who
haite no faith In a real democratic form of
government. In that letter. I stated that
was then, and I have still continued, to Um'.
78th year of my riga, to be a firm believer in --
a truly democratic rehublican form of gov
ernment—l mean a government; founded on
those eternal principles of truth and justice
which our fathers declared were self-evident,
namely : • "That all mon are created equal;
that they are endowed by their ,Creator
with certain inalienable rights; that among
these are life, liberty, and thepursuii of hap
pitiess; that to.,secure these rights, govern- -
- ments - are-instituted•among mon; deriving
, powers from , the consent of the
In the very first words of the Constitution,
formed by our fathers, it is declared that
"We, the people of the United States,. in
order to form a more perfect union, establish
justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide
for the common defence, promote the gen
eral welfare, and-secure the blessings of lib,
arty to ourselves and our posterity, do or
dain and establish this' Constitution for the
United State of America."
Our fathers, in forming for' us this Con
stitution, believed that-they had embodied
in the forms of raw, the highest wisdom,
virtue, and intelligence of a ulkcite ;maple.
They meant to make the wisdom, the virtue,
, and,the intelligence of tlin,people Alio means
to insure - all the blessings requi!ed to inalici
us a nation with all :the 'cowers necessary
establish -justice," and -to - promote the,
general welfare." -
To enable the
_people to do this- in the
moss, mo - convenient manner, ,they declare, in
the first artiblo' of the -Constitution; -that
" All legislative powers herein granted shall
be vested in a Congrels of the United States,
- .Which shall consist of a Senate` and /louse of

you, as sill:Ming at the head of the Demo
cratic party—a party with which Lcontinued
to act so long as I believed it was laboring
to promote the greatest good of our c anion
country; but when I became convinced that
the Democratic party, with which I had
been so long connected, was lending its
power and influence to sustain men and
. measures that had so far perverted the Con
stitution of our country as to deny the rights
of •manhood to 4,000,000 of human beings—
and when I saw that I was noting with a
party which was lending its influence to
men and measures that were raising up in
our couutry t the vilest form t.f an aristo
cr'acy-,-an aristocracy that claimed it as a
right that "property should sewn labor,"
and claimed the right to mix their blood
with the black race, and then sell their
children tb be enslaved with all their pos
terity, then I consider it my duty to my
country to abandon a party that had aban
_dotted the great . p inciples of truth •and
What tongue can describe the horrors of
a system that 'allowed a father sell his
child, who may have had seven-eighths of
white blood in, his veins, to a brutal master,
who Mid the power to confine him - on a
plantation, unddr .a more brutal overseer;
perhaps a Northern man, with his con

a scar on the

system, that allowed such crutdty, as God is
just that the time must come when tblise

of some hotel, preparatorl -
parts unknown. It is a tact,
Masons never die: They may change their
appearance, and move off to other spheres ;
but as for dying, they don't do it. It is
supposed 'by some that, after they here
transacted wickedness enough on this,eartb,
they aro transformed into comets and mete
ors, and go wandering through space, kick
ing up shines, and raising the devil-goner
ally; and a great many peOple suppose that
the last meteoric display was nothing-more
nor loss than a free fight between some rival
lodges that had crossed each other's path . ;
the.different colored lights betokening the
different degrees they had acquired in the
Free Masonry is of ancionfdifte, as proven
by the fact that during the wet season Noah
used to hold meetings in a cornbr of the ark.
Ho was_obliged to give it• up, however; ow
ing to the curiosity of Mrs. Nonli who,
notwithstanding the fact that her' husband
placed a big pair -of-lions and a big croeodtle -
at. the door as outside guard, came •pootty
near finding out the secret and starting a
female lodge on her own hook.
I must tell you of the perils and trials I -
had to - undergo,:to become a Mason. On the
evening in question, I presented - myself- at -
the door.of the lodge roomrNo. 66,66 G, sign
of the skull and cross-bones. I was con
ducted to the ante-room, Where five or six
melancholy chaps in sashes and embroidered
napkins were - wfilthig To' receive me. On
my entrance they all got up and turned back
somersaults, and then, resumed their seats.
A - big fat fellow, wlio sat in the middle, and:
who seemed to be the proprietor, -then said :
" Sinner from the enter world, advance I"
I advanced. " Will you giyetipo_NLer_ytbmg_.
" Not if 1 know it," 1 said ;
'" - there's my wife and fourteen, fine—"
Another party hero told'ine it was merely a
,matter of form. The fellows in the towels
then groaned, and said,- " 'tis well." "Do -
you swear never to reveal anything you May
see or hear this evening to any human be
ing, nor . your wi.e ?".. I said,. " 'Pon my .
word-I will not." They then examined my ,
teeth and felt my muscles,'and magi mo put
out my tongue, and then groaned again. I '
said "If :you don't feel well I have got a
little' bettla here that —." The_ fat gum:.
here tea the bOttle front mo'and fold..truito
shut up. Ho then, in a voice of thunder,
said, " Bring forth the goat." Another
fellow then came pp- with a big cloth to
blindfold me. "No you don't, Mr. Mason,"-
I said; "no tricks on travelers, if you please;
I don't believe in play:int , blind man's. buff .
wltfi a gout. I'll - ride the dOVil hf you fike.
but I don't go it blind. - Stand back, or I'll
knock you into smithereens." They were
too much for nie, however, so I had to Bob- -
mit and bo blindfolded. -The goat was then
led in, and I could hear him 'lnking an aw
ful racket among the furniture. I began to
feel that I was urgently wanted at home,
but I was in fur it, and I could 'not- help
myself. Three or four fellows then seized
me, and with a demoniacal laugh pitched me
.on the animal's baeltriellinwrhe, at the same
time tO - 100k out ,for sqUalle. I have been
in a good many scrapes, Mr. Editor; I have
been in an election light; I've been pitched
out of a fourth-story window I've gone'
down in a railroad' collision, and up in a
steamboat explosion; but this tittle goat
excursion was ahead of them, all. The con
foonded thing must be all wings and horns,
It'bumped mo against the tables find chairs, '
and the stove and the ceiling, but I hung on •-
like a Trojan. I turned front somersaults,
and rolled over till I thought it was all over
with mo. I was just on the point of giving
up when the bandage fell ft'om my eyes, and
the goat bounded through the window, with
se yell like a Comanche Indian giving up the
ghost. I was in a Lodge of Masons. 'fheY
were dancing a war dance around a big ;1
skull, and, playing deaf -frog, and tenting ,
hand-Orings, and the big fat fellow of the •
ante-room - was standing on his head in the
corner, finishing the contents of my little
bottle. Order was soon restored, and I was
led up to the desk, and told to stand at my
ease. The Chief Engineer of the establish-
Ment then put his thumb to his nose, and
strefaing out his inlkft - ehepo - of a ' •
fan towards me, commanded silence. The
rest of the brethren did likewise, and were
silent. The Governor then addressed me:
Ylirothor KnOwn, you aro now ono of ne.

took dm oath on a pack of cards, stood the
whiskey apd water all the way round; and
