Their Letters Accepting Their
Nomination and Endorsing the
Platform of the Chicago Con-
• 'vexation.
my Teti/papa to the Pittsburgh 6azetto.l
WARM:C(IION, June L—The following is
General Grant's reply to the nomination of
the Chicago Convention.
WASHINGTON, D. C., May 29, 1868.
Gem. Joseph It. Hawley. President National
Union Republican Conveniion. '
In formally accepting the nomination of
the National Union Republican Convention
of the 21st of •May, inst., it seems proper
that some statement of •mir viewa, beyond
the mere - acceptance of the. nomma
ion, should be expressed- The pro
ceedings of the Convention were marked
with wisdoms moderation and patriotism,
and , I believe exprem the feelings of the
great mass of these who smtained the
country through itetriaL I endorse their
resolutions. If eieeted to the office of Pres
ident of the 'United States, ft. will be
my endeavor to administer all the laws
in good faith, with economy and with
the view of giving peace, quiet and
protection everywhere. In trines, tike
the present it in. impossible,. or at
least eminently improper, to lay down a
policy_ to be adhered to right or - wrong
through orir administration of four years.
New political issues, not foreseen,.are con
stantly arising. The _views of tho public
on bid ones are constantly changing,
and a purely administrative ofllcershould
always be left free to execute the will of
the-people. I always have respected ,that
will, and always shall. Peace andmaiversal
prosperity, Ito sequence, with economy of
administration, will lighten the burden of
taxation, while it constantly reduces the
public debt. ' Let ue have peace.
With great respect, your obedient servant.
Following is the reply of Speaker Col
fax to the Committee announcing-his nom
ination by the Chicago Convention:.
Wasumerros, D. C., May 30, 1868.
Hon. J. 1?, Hawley, President of NatiOnai
Union Repubheen Convention:
DEAR Sin.: The platform adopted by the
patriotic Convention over which, you pre
sided, and the resolutions which so happily
supplement it, so entirely agree with my
views as to a just national policy that my
thanks are duc to the delegates as much
for this clear and auspicious declaration of
principles for the nomination with which
I have Imo honored, and which I_grate
fully accept. When a great reheilion which
imperilled the national existence was at
last overthrown; the duty of all others de
volving on those entursted with the respon
sibilitieaof legislation, evidently was tore
quire that the revolted States should be ye.
admitted in the participation of the Govern
ment against which tMy had erred only
