New York City - July 28th 1884 - The Honorable Grover Cleveland of New York. - Sir - In accordance with a custom befitting the nature of the communication the undersigned, representing the several states and territories of the Union, were appointed a Committee by the National Democratic Convention which assembled at Chicago on the eighth day of the current month, to perform the pleasing office, which by this means we have the honor to execute, of informing you of your nomination as the Candidate of the Democratic Party in the ensuing election for the office of President of the United States. A declaration of the principles upon which the Democracy go before the people, with the hope of establishing and maintaining them in the government, was made by the Convention; and an engrossed copy thereof is submitted in connection with this Communication for your consideration. We trust the approval of your judgment will follow an examination of this expression of opinions and policy; and, upon the political controversy now made up, we invite your acceptance of the exalted leadership to which you have been chosen. The election of a President is an event of the utmost importance to the people of America; prosperity, growth, happiness, peace and liberty, even, may depend on its wise ordering. Your unanimous nomination is proof that the Democracy believe your election will most contribute to secure these great objects. We assure you that in the anxious responsibilities you must assume as a candidate, you will have the steadfast cordial support of the friends of the cause you will represent; and in the execution of the duties of the high office - which we confidently expect from the wisdom of the nation to be conferred upon you - you may securely rely for approving aid upon the patriotism, honor and intelligence of this free people. We have the honor to be with great respect. - Nicholas M. Bell [sig.] Secretary; Wm. F. Vilas [sig.] President; D.P.
