nted a personal interview as an official treaty . . . . Captain Howe is at Clarksburg-Guentler with him. Mack is here with us. . . . I don't know exactly when I shall be able to leave here; certainly not before to-morrow, and perhaps not until next day. . . . Grafton, June 27. . . . I shall be after the gentlemen pretty shortly. You must be under no apprehensions as to me or the result. I never worked so hard in my life before; even take my meals in my own room. . , . Grafton, June 29. . . .
