My win, you will cast your first vote
for president next November. I don't
want to Influence your vote. I don't want
yon to vote for a certain man just because
certain other nien da I want you to sit
down andthiuk about it before you vote,
t want you to be able to give a reason
for your vole. I want you to go lo the
poll In good company. A a young man
man of progressive Ideas, I want you to
be abreast of the world and shoulder to
shoulder with the times when you walk
up to the polls. I want you, on entering
politics, . to align with tlio party tbnt
ha ' the purest, most progressive
record. I don't care a cent, my boy.
whether you aro a Kcptihllcnn or a Demo
crat. There are honest men, patriotic
citizens, good Christians in both pitrlk's.
Only, I don't want to see you walk up to

Tli at was the defender of slavery;
That is the defender of Mormonism ;
That slandered Garfield; and
That assassinated Lincoln.
Now, as I said before, my son, I don't
care whether you are a Republican or s
Democrat. Choose for yourself. Just
keen away from the crowd whose record
I have very briefly outlined. Find the
party to whom this record belongs, and
then forever keep away from it. You
need not be particular with which party
you nnlte, If you don't join the one.
Always vote against that party and you
will alway vote about right. 1 am a
Republican, but I will shake my hands
with fraternal love witli any Democrat
who vote against that record. That kind
of a Democrat is always a good enough
Republican for me.
