The Cleveland Daily Herald
Cleveland, May 13, 1859
Mr. LovelandŐs Statement.
The Card below is inserted on personal request made by Mr. Loveland:
Messrs. Editors: -
After reading your remarks in last eveningŐs Herald, in reference to me, I deem it due to myself to ask you to state that I did not intend to authorize my Counsel yesterday to give my views on government to the Court; and disclaim holding to many of the doctrines expressed by him. I simply authorized him to enter for me the plea of noli contendere, protesting at the same time that I am not guilty of violating any law, and requiring the protest to be entered on the records of the Court.
