The Congress is growing somewhat irksome
- the papers & responses are all determined in
advance - there is nothing for me to do but just
sit & listen & the proceedings though impot
=ant are on a dead level of an agreed case
- every body agress upon the necesity - or at least
the general desirabity of uniform laws and
international arbitration - the statement of
the matter is not so material. Have attended
strictly - but I intend now to begin to break
away & visit the details of this most wonderful
aggregation of the material triumphs of man.
Rode - Ferris Wheel - 164 ft high - and visited
many other attractions. Went to receptions
at S. Dak. state building to meet Prof "Tom"
Sterling, with whom I studied law in Spring[field]
