SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE
To Charles Sumner
CINCINNATI, Jan'y. 16, 1848.
MY DEAR SIR: I take great pleasure in introducing to
you Mr. L. A. Hise, the author of the accompanying note. I
trust it will be in your power, to comply with the request which
he dL makes, in behalf of the periodical of which he is Editor. A bold and clear exposition of the present relation of parties to each other and the republic could not fail to be,
useful, ht and I know of no one to whose hands such a task could
be more safely confided than to yours. I believe it is the purpose of the publisher to make compensation for articles furnished, but at what rate I am not advised.
I have had it in my mind to write you on the great topics in which we both feel so deep an interest. I hope to be able to do so soon. I read with great satisfaction the eloquent appeal of your State Committee to the People of Massachusetts. We have given a response not wholly unfit, I trust, by our State Platform.
With the truest regard, Faithfully your friend,
