To the man who pardoned the Haymarket Martyrs, who stood up to Cleveland's sending in Federal troops, and helped(with William Jennings Bryan) to create the modern Democratic Party.As Vachel Lindsay wrote about you."Where are those lovers of yours, on what name do they call. The lost, that in armies wept over your funeral pall?They call on the names of a hundred high-valiant ones,A hundred white eagles have risen, the sons of your sons,The zeal in their wings is a zeal that your dreaming began,The valor that wore out your soul in the service of man....Sleep on, O brave-hearted, O wise man, that kindled the flame--To live in mankind is far more than to live in a name.To live in mankind, far,far more...than to live in a name."

You did the right thing by pardoning innocent men. No one could identify the men or man who threw the bomb. Thank you for standing up for what you believed was a total miscarriage of justice.

Governor Altgeld,
You epitomized the best in what government should be about. Your courage in standing up to the President of the United States is not forgotten, as well as the courage thst you showed in pardoning the surviving Haymarket rioters."Well done, good and faithful servant."
