GENTLEMEN; I see by the FREMONT papers and HAND BILLS that there is a meeting to be held at my House, in
favor of Fremont. I can only say that I cannot directly or indirectly be made use of as a means to advance
the claims of JOHN C. FREMONT, whose Principles are calculated to dissolve the Union and deprive a
foreigner of the blessings of our glorious Constitution. I am a Buchanan Democrat, and cannot countenance
any fraud on the community by connecting my name, in any way with a party, whose object and wish are
disunion. I want no such meeting at my house.
