The Nomination to the Presidency of Peter Cooper and His Address to the Indianapolis Convention of the National Independent Party (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Nomination to the Presidency of Peter Cooper and His Address to the Indianapolis Convention of the National Independent Party The convention adopted a platform, and nominated unanimously Mr Peter Cooper as their candidate for the Presidency of the United States. Mr. Cooper was telegraphed the result, but peremptorily declined, at first, for personal reasons. Afterwards, on the earnest representations of friends, he made a conditional acceptance, based upon the hope that one of the subsequent conventions to be held by both the Republican and Democratic parties might assume a favorable aspect towards the financial doctrines of the Independent party; In this hope he was entirely disappointed, as well as in the two letters of acceptance of the two candidates nominated by their respective parties. Mr. Cooper then addressed an open letter to those candidates and to the country, accepting, finally, and unconditionally, his nomination, and giving his reasons for the same. We give here, first, his address to the convention of the Independent party. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
