Rochester N. Y. Oct 30.

Dear Sir

My corresponding duties ceased in Illinois last week. & I came home a few days ago, & am here before going to New York. I send you Seward's recent speech here as being a sort of key note to his present & future position.

I find that the N. Y. Republicans who were in love with Douglas, are rather more inclined to take a different view now. They find much to admire & praise in your conduct of the campaign & be assured that you have made hosts of warm friends at the East. God grant you come out ahead on Tuesday

Respy Yours

C. P. Dewey.
