side of the case. Took dinner
tonight at New Willard - Joslin
took dinner with me & Hoggatt
Birch & Goodwin smoked, &c.
Wrote letter to Debbie - received
one from her this morning -
Carruthers, of Ohio, saw Foraker
this morning & says he is O.K.
Monday - My case came up
today before the Judiciary Committee
of the Senate - Senator Nelson read
a charge & made a statement of the
facts in support of it against
me - Senator Foraker defended &c
and thus for the two hours. Then
the matter went over as unfinished
business until next Monday.
Gov. Hoggatt saw Senator Knox,
who told him that I would be confirm
=ed - though he criticised me for
criticising Nelson in my Reply
Brief. But if Knox knew the
provocation he would not feel so.
