The Minority Report of the Electoral Commission.
To the People of the United States:
The minority of the joint commission established by the act of congress of January 27, 1877, to decide questions arising in the count of the electoral votes, desire to address the people of the whole country on the subjects submitted to and decided by that commission.
No more important questions can ever come before any tribunal or people for consideration and determination. Upon their determination depends who shall be the President of this country, and whether he shall owe that great office to the free, honest choice of the people, or to bribery, forgery, and gross fraud.
