"Ladies and Gentlemen: While I have not been speaking much on this trip, I cannot withstand the temptation to say a word here. The words so kindly spoken by Professor Lehr, you will remember, are not thought of since the nomination. He is one of the original Bryan men. When I was here a year ago he was a Bryan man. I think he wanted you to become associated with me so that if you wanted a post office, you would know where to come to get it. I am not distributing post offices yet, but I hope to do so before long. I remember with a great deal of pleasure this city and the students here of the university, and I hope they will become students of the money question and be prepared to take their part in this fight. I thank you."
