30º above zero this morning.
The "Times" this morning has a
roast of Palmer - calls him an
eavesdropper &c. & threatens him
with the loss of business. I am
now convinced that this threat of a
public attack was what scared
the others out last night. The most
pronounced characteristic of a
"business" man is cowardice - he
calls it "conservatism"' Nice long
letter from Leehey - of Brown & L
- Lawyers, Seattle. Mail in & Debbie
got 2 or 3 letters from Darrell
- he is on the "Nebraska."
McGinn has been drinking heavily
this winter - & losing cases - & now,
he, too - cusses the court! He is still
nice to me - but refuses to act - & talks
ugly when not in my presence.
