went over to Minneapolis today with Holman & took lunch with McLean of the Journal. He came back to St Paul with me & I gave (loaned) him many of my Mt. McKinley pictures to illustrate a repub -lication of his Alaska letters, which I strongly urged upon him. He urged me to be a candidate for delegate from Alaska - and I told him I would be if I could see any chance of success. I also explained about the "Globe" interview - think he intends to give me a notice on Monday- Left St Paul tonight at 8:30 on C. M. & St. P. Did not see Sweeney!!
-10- In Chicago - 2 hours between trains Visited Auditorium to look for Sweeney but he had not been there. I am very much disappointed not to meet him for I spent day in St Paul for that purpose
