Send her with your card and she shall have it, and if she deserves it she shall hold it. She rented her house in Wytheville and took a small house in Washington. I saw her once in about six months or a year after that. She turned out to be a very good clerk, and was not disturbed until the coming in of the reform administration of Mr. Hayes. Then there was a search made for places to put in the reformer's nieces, and the records were examined to see who were behind clerks as to influence.

BuMr. Hayes got a very large vote, Mr. Tarbox as my congressional Democratic opponent got also a very large vote. But my self-constituted opponent, Mr. Hoar, got hardly enough votes in the district where he lived to count for mile-stones.
