Sincerely grateful for the call which you, and many others of my fellow-citizens, have made upon me, I do not hesitate to annouce myself a candidate to represent our District in Congress. My duties in Congress will not permit me to go through the District a under other circumstances I would gladly do.

Your friend and fellow-citizen,
