me. I am, if possible, less solicitous about this affair than I was
before the Ohio Convention. It will be rather a relief to be left
out at Cinti-certainly it will be no disappointment, and there
will be no soreness about it. But such talk as yours, although I
know it is not merited, is very pleasant.
It is probable that Norton will publish it. But is it not best
for you that your name be left off? It is one of the very few
things I would feel like publishing here. My rule & preference,
however, is to do absolutely nothing to favor the movement in
behalf of my nomination. I mean to keep this path to the end.
I see it stated that "even Hayes had friends attending to his in-
terests in the Conventions of Virginia and South Carolina." This
is wholly untrue so far as any act or knowledge of mine is con-
cerned. Very few Republicans in Ohio are so completely out of
the Hayes movement as I am.
The invitation to the opening of the Centennial on May 10th
is to all Governors, and all Members of State Boards. As I come
under both heads, it is possible I may feel constrained to go. But
I do not expect to make my stay in Phila. until after the Cinti
Convention emancipates me from the bondage of candidacy. But
any time during July & August I can go with you, and will enjoy
doing so. You can visit me here as long as you choose before or
after going, greatly to our mutual enjoyment. We are all well.
R. B. Hayes
