Barnette & Turner agree to confirm but
I refuse to move until they do it. As the
building of the courthouse hangs on their
action they are acting promptly.
Telegram today to Harlan asking his judgment
about whether Valdez courthouse ought to be
delayed until Congress acts on division bill.
Think he is suggesting delay to Perry & if he
is I want people of Valdez to know it!!
Heard two small applications today in the
new office on Front St. Have just returned
from attending the A.B. "Smoker" - speeches,
good music, beer & sandwiches. I, Hess
& Claypool did the talking - but the real
pleasure of the evening was the fine music
- Morgan & three other violinists - piano &c.
Morgan is a good violinist & Capt. Barnettes
nephew sings well - good time.
