sign it or not, but I am much pleased
that Jones & Foster had the courage to
"stand up". Cushman was never in doubt.
Left Washington at 5:40 p.m. over the
Penn. Ry. for Chicago. Am well satisfied
with the sum total of my trip to Washington
- it seems to me as if I will be reappointed
judge now - and that all that is left to my
enemies is to scandalize and blackmail
me with false affidavits after I am in
Alaska and not able to answer.
All day on train toward Chicago - Mr. &
Mrs. G. G. Perry on train with me - We
arrived in Chicago at 9. p.m & I went
to the "Auditorium Hotel", had a bath &
went to bed.
Loafed all day at Auditorium - nothing
doing. Perrys went on to Dubuque.
