PRESIDENTIAL WESTERN TOUR AT WALKER HOUSE

 

September 5, 1880

Salt Lake City, Utah

 

Fellow citizens of Salt Lake: Under other circumstances, and upon another day, meeting you as I meet you now, I would be very glad, in somewhat extended remarks, to give expression to the sentiments which I am sure all strangers feel when  they come into this wonderful city of Salt Lake. But as it is, considering the occasion and the day, you will excuse me. I am sure, if I content myself simply by saying that for this welcome and reception I heartily thank you.
