Messrs. BLODGETT, UPTON AND OTHERS :

Gentlemen-Your note is before me.

You know the time for the preparation of that discourse was very brief. You are also aware, doubtless, that though spoken from copious notes, much of it was extemporized, and that I cannot reproduce those passages. But such as it is, I place it in your hands, as my humble tribute to the name and the virtues of our murdered President. With much respect, gentlemen, Yours truly,

T. M. Eppy.
