One effect of finding the letters is that
I have determined not to permit the
clerk to dismiss Herron - although
I am drawn to this conclusion more from
regard for his wife and child who are
here with him, than from any other cause.
Have explained to Sam. Taylor that I can
=not secure his appointment just now
- I will have him appointed when another
change is made in the clerks office.
On Thursday evening last I took
dinner at Capt. Hansons, with Mrs. Meiggs
her three daughters, Capt. H. Mr and Mrs. Crane
and Mr. Fink and his sister, in celebration
of the announcement of the marriage of
Fink and Miss Laura Meiggs -
- It's a fair trade!
On a Friday evening Mr. & Mrs. H. E.
Shields, my old Seattle friend, took
dinner with me at the Hotel. Am at
work on rules of court, hearing cases
both day and evening, writing opinions
between times and reading "The Wandering
Jew" after retiring for the night
