Lincoln (2012)
William Seward: Madam, if the rebels surrendered next week, would you, at the end of this month, want Congressman Burton to vote for the Thirteenth Amendment?
Mrs. Jolly: If that was how it was, no more war an' all, I reckon Mr Jolly much prefer not to have Congress pass the Amendment.
William Seward: [Seward turns to stand beside Mr Jolly and looks at Lincoln] And... Why is that.
Mr. Jolly: [Mr Jolly looks at him with surprise] Niggers.
Mrs. Jolly: If he don't have to let some Alabama coon come up from Missouri and steal his chickens and his job, we'd much prefer that.
William Seward: [Seward takes Mrs Jolly's letter, walks over to Lincoln and puts it on his desk. He says quietly] The people. I begin to see why you're in such a great hurry to put it through.
