The SPEAKER. I have the distinguished honor of presenting the Chairman.


To the City Council of the Territory of Cowford in La-Florida:
Yesterday, Cowford was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Order and its Representatives. Cowford was at peace and a neutral party in the current war between SCARS and the ORDER providing port and trade services to both parties as a Freeport. Representatives were still in conversation with its representatives looking toward the maintenance of peace. Indeed, 1 hour after the attack, the Order Ambassador to Cowford and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack. In addition to this attack one of our formal council representatives one Auntie Social has been detained by suspected Order representatives from her peaceful diplomatic trade mission and has not been heard of since her detainment.


It will be recorded that the distance of the Cowford timeline in the multi-verse from the Order’s timeline makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the ORDER has deliberately sought to deceive Cowford by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace. Additionally, The Orders has shown through its continuing actions across the Multi-Verse and its crimes against human freedom that it is not one for peace but imperialism and domination.


The attack has caused severe damage to the Cecil Aerodrome. Very many lives have been lost. In addition Cowford flagged ships have been reported torpedoed and shot upon on their travels through the multi-verse.
Cowford also has reason to believe, through various intelligence channels, the recent collapse of one of the timelines reported by the TRANS-DIMENSIONAL NEWS AND TELEGRAPH is a show of power which was used to intimidate others into bowing to the ORDER.


The facts speak for themselves. The people of the Territory of Cowford in La-Florida have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety. I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense and have contacted the representatives of both the Empire of Britain and the Representatives of the Kaiser who have sent assistance for our current crisis and pledge ongoing support in our fight for freedom.


Always will we remember the character of the onslaught. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated attack, the people of Cowford, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory.
I believe I interpret the will of the City Council and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger. With confidence in our armed forces with the unbounded determination of our people we will gain the inevitable triumph so help us God.


I ask that the City Council declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by the ORDER, a state of war now exists between the Territory of Cowford in La-Florida and the Order and its allies...


There upon the Chairman retired from the chamber.

The Speaker announced that the Special Session was dissolved.

Thereupon the Vice Chairman and the Members of the City Council, the members of the Cabinet, and the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court retired from the Chamber.
