      Well it was a good guess but appraently wrong. The excerpt I am looking

      for sounded like it came from Stephens speech but it does not appear
      there. See if it sounds familiar to anyone.

      Carman wrote: Southern leaders were firm " in the conviction that cotton

      was King in England as well as the United States and that an
      interpuption in its supply would be so serious in its consequences that
      a new republic, where cotton was to be king and slavery its
      corner-stone, would be welcomed into the family of nations as the surest

      possible guaranty against the occurrance of such a disaster."

      Sure sounds like Stephens, doesn't it?
