for the return of the Instruments, which
was done. The petitioners also deny that

I feel that you are sincere when you say
that you do not want a nomination in-

th counties I have named, or take the
nomination from a convention that had
refused Polk county the right of repre

gates from other counties on account of
th time at which their delegatea were
chosen? I know the high standards which
yon recognise, and I ask you, aa a fellow
