Lucas' State Of Mind

"I have nothing to say, except that I feel better over Thomas' success in getting McCormick, Glasscock and Briody than if some one had given me $10,000," said President Lucas to a Globe-Democrat reporter.  "I don't take any pride in contract-breaking as a regular business, but it is a good thing to succeed when self-preservation forces you to engage in it.  There is also great pleasure in going into the enemy's camp, capturing their guns and using them on your own side."
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, August 10, 1884
