heard of my reappointment which took place
on the 16th. Recd. kind letter from Judge Allyn
congratulating both himself and me on the result
Also letter from Senator Nelson, of Minnesota
- he is still ugly - but not virulent - He
keeps harping upon the idea that Birch supports
me - as if a successful litigant ought to be
expected to abuse the court. Recd. clipping
from "Tacoma Ledger" highly complimentary
- & giving some of the details of Judge Days
report - which seems to have sustained
me fully - No news yet about other appointments
I hope none will be made until my letter reaches
Senator Fairbanks - in favor of "Organization"
Jury in U.S. v Johnson seems to be "hung"
Papers of 18th on "Santa Clara"
