Of this number, Mr. Holden received
292, and I received 272 giving Mr.
Holden a majority of 20; therefore
he is the choice of the party, and
wo owe him our united .support. I
am pledged to the action of the
Convention, and lo my many
friends, who have approached me,
urging me to become an indepen

say, under no circumstances can I
consent to such an arrangement; on
the contrary, after hearing the
pledge of Mr. Holden, it is now
our duty to give him such a vote as
wul strengthen his hands and make
him steadfast In his good resolves.
I am proud to know that no one
charges me with dereliction of duty

many friends who differ with me
politically. My future life, I trust,
will merit a continuance of this re
spect. I am your ob't serv't,
