can be to them.
Having said much,for myself, lem de
sirous of saying a word or two in regard to the
objects of your meeting. 'lt is, as I understand,
to call the public attention to.'and concentrate
public action upon, the re-electicin of your pre

Hon. David Wilmot. Atli have had thelion.

and gratification, in common with the adminis

there, A . can speak Prow personal knowledge.—
