--We are authorized by Mr. Lyons
to say that he will support Dr. Garnett
for the Convention
, with great cordiality, as he would have any other gentleman who might have been nominated by the Anti-Submission State-Rights party of the country.
The following card has also been furnished to the friends of Dr. Garnett
, by the Hon. A. R. Hollanday
"I was never, at any time, a candidate for a seat in the Convention
, and never desired to be a candidate; but having been informed that it was the wish of some of my friends to tender a nomination to me, I beg permission to express my earnest desire, and hope they will give their most active, earnest, and cordial support to Dr. John R. Garnett
, as he shall certainly have mine with all my heart.
Alex. R. Holladay
