  • Holograph, signed with initials
  • David Lee Child doubts the desirability of holding 300 conventions. He has not received favorable reports from the Western Convention. Child said: "Privately, and I think from impartial sources I have heard that these conventions have not done much good." Fault was not found with the agents. He quotes Virgil to the effect that I have worked, but others have taken the honors. Child is not able to leave New York, as the Standard takes all his time on weekdays and Sundays. He discusses Richard Hildreth's qualifications, mentioning his "propensity to enter party combinations and electioneering." Child declares that he himself is "a faithful dog and will remain so, even if upon the suggestion of the wolves, the flock should discard me." A. K. (Abby Kelley) has written to James S. Gibbons, abusing David Lee Child and "withdrawing for the tenth time 'her countenance' from the Standard." The New World has refused to publish an address by Professor [William] Adam; Child asks if it can be printed as a pamphlet for the fair. It could later be republished in the Standard
