Cassius M. Clay, Minister to Russia, offered his services to Secretary Cameron, either as an officer to raise a regiment, or as a private in the ranks.
Mr. Cameron said: “Sir, this is the first instance I ever heard of where a foreign Minister volunteered in the ranks.”
“Then,” said Clay, “let's make a little history.”
He has been surrounded by friends, shaking hands and congratulating him. He will not leave the country just yet.--Times, April 19.
