the Diligent Observer

Sir-

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.
