be printed. Wrote another
letter to the Atty. Genl. in favor
of commuting sentence of
Joseph Notti. Called on
Genl. Humphrey, Quartermaster
Gen. U.S.A. & he gave me an old
Sharps rifle which he captured
from the Chinese arsenal at
Tien Tsen, China.
Sulzer telephoned me saying:
He had just seen the President
and spent 15 minutes or more
in discussing my case: The President
said he wished me confirmed.
Sulzer told him about Nelson
McCumber opposition & President
said he could send for them & ask
them to cease their opposition.
Pres. said that Nelson agreed to do
so if I carried the Com. & the President
now looks upon McCumber opposi
=tion as bad faith on Nelsons part.
Went to baseball game
with Walter Clark, who took
dinner with me.
