today wrote personal letter to
Senator Clarke, Ch. of Judiciary
Com. Senate, asking that my
confirmation be acted on promptly
on account of fire at Fairbanks
& immediate necessity for court.
Finished requisitions for all
supplies, & for furniture for courthouse
at Fairbanks - sent my books
- Americana, purchased in New York
& at Lowdermilks, in Wash. home by
mail - Am ready to go home now
on a few hours notice - Walter E.
Clark took lunch with me & went
to New York to arrange for a trip to
Alaska - if he can so arrange it.
Judge Neville, from Mississippi
has become my friend & today had a
talk with Senator Money, of Miss.
who told him that he thought I was
being persecuted - that a lawyer by the
name of Scott, met me in Alaska
& being nicely treated formed a high
opinion &c. and had already spoken
to Sen. Money, about me. Neville says
Sen. Money is my fighting friend!
