Cincinnati, Oct. 16, 1875.

I cannot deny myself the pleasure of writing to you, both thanking and congratulating you for the splendid and effectual work done by you in Ohio, in the cause of a sound currency. Your speech in Cincinnati, I read, but did not hear, because I found all the approaches to Turner Hall so solidly packed, that any entrance was impossible. I hope that your assistance, so opportunely rendered, may not only save the country from further paper inflation, and hasten the return to specie payments, but may so far liberalize the Republican party that our German Liberals may feel at home in it.
