he is sure against me, - but
I will go and meet Mr. Herbert.
Dr. Whitehead is back & is at
work - he has telegraphed - & so
did I - to Henry Bratnober - at
Piedmont, California, asking
him to telegraph to his friends here
- we want Mark Smith, delegate
from Arizona to help with Senator
Blackburn, & so advised him.
Am sorry but Senators Bailey
& Gearin are both out west -
both are my friends.
Nothing from home yet.
Newspaper men are nearly always
good to me - E. B. Smith, is the
hotel reporter for the Washington
Post, and works for me in season
& out - he just came in to tell me
that Bratnobers telegrams are
coming in - one to Ex. Gov. Murphy
of Arizona, has started him & others
to work - Smith feels quite confident.
