[June Wed 6]
Just received telegram from
Senator Foster as follows: "Your
appointment just came to Senate for
Judge in Alaska. I congratulate you.
A. G. Foster."
Sent Senator Foster telegram: "I
thank you for my appointment. It
places me and my family under
deep and last obligations to you.
Where am I assigned by the President."
Other telegrams from Foster saying that
appointment confirmed by Senate, & that
Noyes of Minn. & Brown of Wyoming
are also appointed: he requests me
not to commit myself on appointments
of court officers until he can write.
