The Harvard college profes-ors and

THE LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE.
We publish clsexvhcrc Mr. Blaine's
letter of acceptance. It appears to us
to be tho ablest, most explicit, influen
tial, and thoroughly wise document
ever addressed to a nominating com
mittee as a letter of acceptance. The
history not only of the two pending
political parties, but, iu an economic
aspect, of the nation, is condensed iu
it. Amply as xve tvere satisfied with
the Republican platform to which this
is a response, it must be said that ihe
letter of acceptance at once embodies
and supersedes the platform. Upon
this letter alone the campaign cau be

as through a glass darkly. Now they
are proudly pointed to because xve are

Mr. JJIaino's letter is not merely lu
minous; it is a flood of golden sun
shine; it is life radiant, health exuber

scll-cunscious. Every man who reads
it carefully will feel iukpjml ,,y jt.
