KKK initiation pamphlet, "I further swear that all Radicals and Negrores, who have placed themselves opposite to the intrests of the owners of the soil of Tennessee shall forever be my enemy, and that under no circumstance will I have other connection with them, if I can help it other than to 'welcome them with bloody hands to a hospitable graves.' That my family and the family of Radicals shall never interchange visits and I further pray that the God of the Southland, whom I now invoke, shall strike me dead should I ever either in letter or in spirit infringe upon the things set forth in this oath."
