I'll go ahead and take sections 6 and 7 too, if that's OK. I'm starting to like President Grant, if not entirely his oratory.

Here is Section 4

Hello Russ,
Thank you for the reading. This is the first year where the figures were not included in the address. Two years later they are all back so apparently it wasn’t accepted well.

49:09 - But few of the officials receive a compensation equal to the respectable support of a family, while their duties are such as to involve millions of interest. In private life services demand compensation equal to the services rendered; a wise economy would dictate the same rule in the Government service.
I hear Federal Government

59:12 - Their labors are not yet complete, but it is believed that they will succeed in devising a plan that can be adopted to the great relief of the Executive, the heads of Departments, and members of Congress, and which will redound to the true interest of the public service. At all events, the experiment shall have a fair trial.
I hear experience

Before you upload again, please correct the file name. It should be: stateoftheunion1869_1876_04_various_128kb.mp3

0:17 extra wording (please delete) – State of the Union Addresses (1869-1876) Ulysses S. Grant, December 5, 1870, part 2
By steadiness in our present course there is no reason why in a few short years the national tax gatherer may not disappear from the door of the citizen almost entirely.
That certainly didn’t happen.

Thank you for claiming the remaining Address. I’m glad you are enjoying Grant. Before continuing to the other sections please correct the prior sections. PL oks are really important around here. :wink:

Sorry! I read that wrong ~ thank you for catching it, Linny! :oops:
No problem at all. I only stepped in because I didn't want you to spend the time on it.

Thank you for the move to Readers Found! :clap:
