"Gentlemen of Indiana: I am happy to meet you on this occasion, and enter again the state of my early life, and almost of my maturity. I am under many obligations to you for your kind reception and to Indiana for the aid she rendered our cause which I think a just one. Gentlemen, I shall address you at greater length at Indianapolis, but not much greater. Again gentlement, I thank you for your warm-hearted reception."
