Ed. Orr. and the Valdez mail
got in at midnight. Fine
weather - has been only zero weather
for two weeks - clear & beautiful.
Am beginning to shut off on trials
of cases and am closing up all
matters so that if President does
not reappoint me business will
be ready for my retirement.
Sunday - beautiful day - warm
- not below zero - fine skating & sleighing
Reynoldson, chief deputy for Perry
since his appointment in 1900, went
out on the Valdez stage today. Mr
Harlan told me that he carried letters
from Dodge & my opponents - and
I suspect he goes out to begin a fight
on Perry, who discharged him Oct. 1.
