The following is the letter of accept
ance of the nomination for the Presidency
by the Whig Convention:-
Baton Rouge, La.9 July 15i, 1S48.
Sir: I have had the honor to receive
your communication of June 10th, an
nouncing that the Whig Convention which
assembled at Philadelphia on the 7th of
that month, and of which you were the
presiding officer, has nominated me for the
office of President of the United States.
Looking at the composition of the Con
vention, and its numerous and patriotic
constituency, I feel deeply grateful for the
honor bestowed upon me,' and for the dis
tinguished confidence implied in my no
mination by it, to the highest office in the
gift of the American people.
I cordially accept that nomination, but
with a sincere distrust of my fitness to ful
fil the duties of an office, which demands
for its exercise the most exalted abilities
3ntj patriotism, and which has-been ren
mon country. s
1 have the honor to remain,
With th; highest respect,
Your most obedient servant,
To the Hon. J. M. Morehead,
Greensboro', Guilford Co., No Cav
