Telegraphed to Tacoma for N.P.
Agent to send me receipt for my
fare to Chicago - intend to make
up quarterly account against
the U.S. for my expenses to Washing
=ton & try & get it paid. Also
drew my March salary.
Walter E. Clarke took lunch
with me at the Raleigh -
Spent a couple of hours with Gov.
Hoggatt at the Willard - he is
packing & will leave Washington
for New York tomorrow & then
westward! He says that Senator
Hemenway of Indiana & Vice Pres
Fairbanks will not let any thing
be undone to secure my confirmation.
He thinks it is sure, and so do
they. Hoggatt is my strong friend -
and says he will come back to help
if I think it necessary &c.
C. A. Snowden, of Tacoma
is at Willard - My affairs
look satisfactory generally.
