94 Broadway, New York, Oct. 2, 1878.

You have my hearty thanks, and I have no doubt the hearty thanks of many thousands for your admirable and exhaustive speech at Cincinnati. It covers [the] whole ground, leaving nothing for inflationists to stand upon. It is, by far, the severest blow which has been given to the false gods which so many of our people are bowing down to. I wish all the members of the Cabinet were as sound on the financial questions as the Secretary of the Interior and as fearless as he in discussing it.
