an opportunity to The exactions of my public duties I felt to be so that when flrst confronted by the delegation of which you were the head I expected to do no more at that time than to promise the consideration of the double invitation tendered and express the pleasure it would give mo toi accept the same thereafter if But fiio cordiality and sincerity of your reenforeed by the heartiness of

remain away from the encampment in case I visit the city at that Without considering the merit of such an I feel that I ought not to be tho cause of such The time and pliico of the encampment were fixed long before my invitations were Those desiring to participate in its proceedings should be first and nothing should be pormited to Interfere with their Another consideration of more importance than all others remains to be The fact was referred to by you when you verbally pre sented the invitation of the citizens of Louis that the coming encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic would bo the llrst held in a Southern I suppose this fact was men tioned as a pleasing Indication of the fraternal feeling fast gaining ground throughout the en tire land and hailed by every patriotic citizen as an earnest that Ihe Union has really und in fact been saved in sentiment and with all the bencllts It vouchsafes to a united I cun not rid myself of the belief that the least dis coril on this propitious occasion might retard the progress of the sentiment of common brotherhood which the Grand Army of Ihe Re public has so good an opportunity to increase and I certainly ought uot to ihe cause of such discord in any event or upon any It seems to me that you and the citizens of Louis are entitled to this unreserved statement of the conditions which have con strained me to forego my contemplated visit and to withdraw my acceptance of your My presence iu your city at tlmo you have indicated can be of but ittlo moment compared with the im portance of the coraial and harmonious entor iainment of your other I assure you that I abandon ray plan without the least uer sonul feeling except constrained thereto by a sense of actuated by u desire to save any embarrassment to the people of Louis or their expected and with a heart full of grateful appreciation of the sincere and unaf fected kindness of your Hoping the encampment may bo an occasion of much use and that its
