Rachel Donaldson Robards Jackson: [to Andrew who is planning to dual with Charles Dickinson the following morning] Andrew, if I'm to be the cause of all your quarrels for the rest of your life, then you give me no choice. I must leave you! I will not let you be killed because of me, nor will I let you take another man's life. I must leave!
Andrew Jackson: You'd leave me now??
Rachel Donaldson Robards Jackson: No! No! Oh Andrew, please, please don't do this! If Mr. Dickinson's bullet kills you, it kills me too! Let him say what he will about me!
Andrew Jackson: No man can say what he will about my wife!! Rachel, I've failed you a great many times and a great many ways and I hope you'll forgive me. But I couldn't expect you to forgive me if I lived without honor!
Rachel Donaldson Robards: Well, how did you get the divorce? What were the grounds? Andrew, what were the grounds?
