Additional Details

". . . It has indeed been a great honor to have you feel that I am fitted for the great office of President. . . .
"The question as to who wins in these contests is to me of less importance than that we keep faith in the great issues before us. We shall have years of great trial in the solution of most difficult questions and, although we have not had our own way as to the tools for their solution, we have no less obligation to stand vigorously for the right handling of these issues."
