"On entering upon this honorable and important position, it becomes my duty to return my sincere thanks for the honor conferred . . . . I beg of you to extend for me all possible courtesy whilst occupying this chair. If inadvertently I should make errors of ruling, I trust that you will impute them more to the head than the heart."
-First Meeting of Nevada Territorial Legislature (1861)
