I received a letter from Debbie - a nice
good clean letter just like here - nothing else
in the way of mail. The P.I. has a statement
from Walter E. Clarke saying that I will
not be confirmed - but that no action at
all will be taken - & that I will be reappointed.
Gen. E. M. Carr of Seattle is on board - going to
Fairbanks - He is a lawyer & "I just wonder" if he
is to take Humes place in the effort to oust me?
It now seems certain that I will not be
confirmed - at least this session - whether
the President will think it advisable to reap
=point me for another recess term I doubt
- I may have to be content with the
findings of Judge Days report & the
approval of the President - & quit.
