arge fortune and could afford to give the United States her proper place among nations by supplementing the meagre salary of a minister to foreign lands with ample means from his private income. Diplomatic life was not congenial to him or his family, and he soon returned to his beloved native land. Notwithstanding the charges which had been made against him, he was elected to the United States Senate in 1867, and again in 1873. His increasing years and great desire to have his son, James Donald Cameron, succeed him in the Senate, caused him, as soon as he had consummated arrangements for his son's election, to resign for the second time his seat in the Senate.

On May 22, after obtaining a suitable wardrobe, on the invitation of Mr. and Mrs. J. Donald Cameron, I accompanied them to Harrisburg, to make a visit as I went to join my husband in Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Cameron were then staying in the home of Senator Cameron's father, Hon. Simon Cameron, at their quaint old home, formerly that of Gher venerable husband had lived at Willard's at the same time as we did when we went to Washington in 1867.. We were intimate friends, General Logan being a special favorite of Father Cameron's. They took me out to Lochiel, the home of Senator J. Donald Cameron, at that time one of the show-places of the country. It was one of the most charming places on the banks of the Susquehanna River. No more lovely spot could be found, with its perfection of natural beauty and the highest art of cultiv

On Feb. 4, 1882, in order to still further impress his convictions of General Porter's innocence upon influential members of Congress, he addressed the following detailed letter to J. Donald Cameron, United States Senator from Pennsylvania: New York, Feb. 4, 1882. Hon. J. D. Cameron, U. S. Senate, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir,—It has been my intention until within the last few days to visit Washington this winter to spend some time, Hon. J. D. Cameron, U. S. Senate, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir,—It has been my intention until within the last few days to visit Washington this winter to spend some time, and there to have a conversation with you and with General Logan on the subject of the Fitz-John Porter case; but having now pretty nearly decided not to go to Washington, I have determined to write, and write to you so that you may state my position to your friends, and particularly to General Logan, and, if you choose, show this letter to any such people. When I commenced the examination of the Fitz-John Porter case as it now stands, it was with the conviction that his sentence was a just o

Well, Mr. Secretary Cameron says to the general in command there: You are to welcome into your camp all comers; you are to organize them into squads and companies; use them any way yo You, of course, won't come to see me at my old nurse's little cottage, between eleven in the morning and four in the afternoon, because I sha'n't see you. So Mr. Cameron says there is to be no general arming. But I suppose there is to be a very particular arming. But he goes on to add: This is no greater interference with the <
