T. Roosevelt: Tom?
T. Jefferson: "You and I have formerly seen warm debates and high political passions. But gentlemen of different politics would then speak to each other and separate the business of the Senate from that of society. It is not so now. Men who have been intimate all their lives cross the streets to avoid meeting, and turn their heads another way, lest they should be obliged to touch their hats. This may do for young men with whom passion is enjoyment. But it is afflicting to peaceable minds. Tranquility is the old man's milk."
T. Roosevelt: "The final thought goes to you, General Washington, and then we shall bid adieu to this moonlit night . . ."
G. Washington: "Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder . . ."
T. Roosevelt: "And together, may we all say, Amen . . . "
