"I am looking for that which is dearer to me than all elseómy wife and children. I would be glad to make a speech, but, like all other people, we must eat. Having but a few minutes in which to satisfy our hunger, I hope you will kindly excuse me if I do not make a speech at this time. I am flattered by this demonstration, and I feel sure that if you keep up this enthusiasm until November, there will be no doubt of my election."
