We shall carry three, perhaps five, of the states usually accorded to the solid south. The canvass was never in better condition." "Are the Cameron's friendly ?" "Quite so, father and son, and all their friends." "Do these scandalous reports worry you ?" "Not at all; truth is mighty and will prevail, and what judgment shall I fear, having done no wrong? Indeed, I am kept so busy all the time that I do not see one-half the papers that are severe upon me. Of course bitter attacks are expected and the people understand it." "How are yo'" pleased with your re ception ?" "Delighted, overwhelmed.
