Went to the Geological Survey today - &
took lunch with Brooks, Hayes, Rizer
& others. They declare my picture of Mt.
McKinley the finest ever taken, & specially
suggest that it be sent to the St Louis Ex
as part of the Alaska exhibit. Also
went to Senate Chamber and met Senator
Fairbanks - he invited Mrs. W. & me to dinner
with them at their residence after we return
from Annapolis - & Col. Ramsdell, Sarg
eant at Arms of the Senate invited me to a
dinner tomorrow night when the Sub-Com
which went to Alaska will again meet
- at Col. Ramsdells house - Will go if
I can get release from Sammons theater party.
