Automobile ride with Mr & Mrs
Brumbaugh - Birch here & spent
day with him - He & Gov. Hoggatt
took dinner with me.
Saw Baring of the old Copper
Case from Wilkesbarre, Penn. at
the New Willard - the "pack" is here
to fight me - and Nelson is to do
the work for them in the Senate.
Birch went back to New York
tonight. Wish I could go home
- I hate to sit around here as if
I wanted the damned office - When
I would be much better off without
it. - But I intend to make them
earn their victory if they get it.
Went to Geological Dept. with Hoggatt,
to get map of Copper river railroads, &c.
Telegram from Ralph, N.Y. that a
Mr. Goodwin would come over to assist
in fighting the Copper trust theives from
Penn. - Am told that O. P. Hubbard is
