I am surprised and annoyed by the contents of your letter. Surprised because my well-known character should have exempted me from such an application; and annoyed because it compels me to have even this communication with you.
I have long been addicted to the gaming table. I have lately taken to the Turf. I fear I frequently blaspheme. But I have never distributed religious tracts. All this was known to you and your society. Notwithstanding which you think me a fit person to be your President.
God forgive your hypocrisy.
