should be the choice of his party at

a nomination for a third term, under
any circumstances, meaning, of course,
a third consecutive term.
"I could not have said less at the
time, nor could I have said more. Of J

or not there would be a demand fori
me to acceput a nomination at some I
future time. And, believing as I do,!
