Tuff On Fremont

A correspondent of the New York Times suggests that the original of the Cleveland Convention will be found in 1st Samuel, 22 chapter and 2d verse, as follows:

“And every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented, gathered themselves unto him; and he became a captain over them; and there with him abut four hundred men.”
