m as thoroughly and carefully as I can. What I havewritten is that which my reflections have determined me to say. If there is any-thing in the expressions I use, or in any minor matter, which any one of youthink had best be changed, I shall be glad to receive your suggestions. One other observation I will make. I know very well that many othersmight, in this matter as in others, do better than I can; and if I was satisfiedthat the public confidence was more fully possessed by any one of them than byme, and knew of any constitutional way in which he could be put in my place,he should have it. I would gladly yield to him. But though I believe I havenot so much of the confidence of the people as I had some time since, I do notknow that, all things considered, any other person has more; and, however thismay be, there is no way in which I can have any other man put where I am. Iam here; I must do the best I can, and bear the responsibility of taking thecourse which I feel I ought to take.
