Excerpt from Speeches and Addresses of William E. Russell

But the greater the personal triumph, the greater the inconvenience subsequently endured. During his whole three years of Office he had to hold his own against a Legislature and a State government politically opposed to him. It is unnecessary to point out that this was a great test of courage and judgment, and that he experi enced the benefit of the long official training which he had received. The tact, the energy, the patience which had been developed by four years in the mayor's chair were all needed for his three years of gubernatorial life, and he had cultivated those qualities in a high degree. To retire voluntarily from such a position after three years of service without having made a single serious mistake, and with the respect of his very Opponents, was to have endured an ordeal such as is not common in public life.
