THE LIFE OF HON. SCHUYLER COLFAX. By the Rev. A. Y. Moore, of South Bend, Indiana, who was for twelve years, as pastor and friend, in the entire confidence of Mr. Colfax, and had access to the files of the paper published by Mr. Colfax for twenty years, and to the Congressional Globe; knows all his past history and all who have known him from boyhood. He began this biography two or three years ago, so that it is not one of the hurried and ephemeral publications so common in election years.
The following letter from Mr. Coltax, to Rev. A. Y. Moore, will explain itself: “My Dear Mr. Moore :
“WASHINGTON, D. C., May 30, 1868. As your prediction of a year ago has been realized, I havo no further objection to your publishing any sketch, more or less full, of my life, you may have prepared. As you were for a dozen years a fellow-townsman of mine, and a valued friend, I suppose you know as much about my history as the public would care about knowing; and although my engrossing duties here leave me no time to revise the manuscript, I have no fear that your work will not be a faithful one. “Yours, very truly, “SCHUYLER COLFAX.”
“Rev. A. Y. Moore, South Bend, Indiana."
