I have my days of doubt and my
days of victory - and this is one
of the latter - I really think today
that I will win out - but what the
morrow will bring forth I cant tell.
Major Lacey saw Senators Allison
& Dolliver & they are both all right.
I must now look after an organized
effort about the first of next week!
Dr. Whitehead & wife went west
this afternoon. John Corson of
Nome & Seattle is here with a Maine
"bunch" fighting Judge Reed, of
Nome - Commissioner at Nome.
Will let them fight him - I dont
care for he and every friend he had
went off with Richards & Sullivan
& against me. It is apparent
from what Cushman says to me
that Claypool has been exerting
his most malicious influences
against me & that it has had
some effect - I wont do a
thing to that ungrateful hound!!
