The plan of my enemies is now
well understood - under the rules
of the Senate no matter can go to vote
if any Senator desires to talk, and
the plan is that McCumber and Nelson
will talk as long as the Senate consid
=ers my case. They can talk, read
reports, &c. &c. until the Senate adjourns
and that in spite of the fact that I have
a large majority of Senators favor
=able to my confirmation. And
that is what they are determined to do.
Instead of feeling disappointed
at this turn of affairs I am pleased
- next to a confirmation. It gives
me the public vindication that I
desired & puts my enemies in
the position of unfair politicians.
Wrote to Debbie & Mr. Ralph
& explained the situation to them
& will go to work Monday to try
to get one of my friends to tie up
some of their legislation in
retaliation - until the drop loose.
