Beloit, Wis., Sept. 14th 1859 --
Dear Sir --
Seeing by our papers that you have accepted an invitation to deliver the address at our State fair at Milwaukee, the last of this month -- Our City Republican Club have instructed me to write and see if you would stop at our place on your return home from the fair, and address the Citizens of old Rock County, on the great political issues which now absorbes the public mind in the Northwest.
It is their desire that you should open the Campaign here, if your engagements would permit -- You can come from Milwaukee to our place by Rail Road and from here to Freeport or Belvidere by R. R.
Hopeing [Hoping] to hear from you by return mail I subscribe myself.
Very Respectfully &c
M. A. Northrop
