notified if my case came up in
Went up to capitol today with
Ex Governor Swineford (of Alaska)
& called on Sulzer (N.Y.) They
went & called on Senator Tillman
(S. C. ) who promised to support me,
and also on Culberson (of Texas) &
Bacon (of Georgia) both of whom, they
report, are friendly. This afternoon
Major Richardson, U.S.A. & my
newspaper friend Ed. B. Smith, of
the Post, called on Culberson at his
house - they had a long & satisfactory
interview. The situation seems
better today than ever & I now
have confidence - but - wait!
The Committee meets tomorrow
- Saturday - though I dont quite
know about it. Sulzer says
he can reach & control Col. Phil.
Thompson & Blackburn - but I doubt
it. Saw Nye today at National Hotel.
