the years of my life covering a period
of over a half century. AH I can do
is to call upon every atom of my be

for the distinguished honor which
you have done me in naming me as
your candidate for highest - position
directly in the gift of the electorate
of this great district, a seat in the
lower house of the national congress.
With all my heart I thank" you for
this evidence of your faith in my loy
alty to the party which you, in part,
represent; and for your confidence
thus manifested in my ability to meet
the obligations which attach to leadership.-
More particularly still, do I
appreciate the fact that you should
count me as qualified to meet and per
form, worthily, the duties and res
ponsibilities which devolve upon those
who hold positions of such high es
tate as that for which you have nom
inated me. This latter comes to itie
with special force, knowing as I do,
that all of you feel with me that the
nominee of this convention is going to
to be the next congressman from the
tenth district. -
