Iwrite to thank you for the
sentiments expressed of my wife and myself in your letter to Governor Hadley.
I had a splendid interview with the Governor yesterday. He was not aware
of the perfidy of John B. Stone, until told by my friend Mr. Heitman, who
has voluntarily taken up my cause, and the good women of the daughters
of the Confederacy have also voluntarily taken up my cause, a committee
of whom had a conference with Mr. Hadley at Swope Park yesterday afternoon.
And I now think that my chances are far better than they ever were before.
Allow me again to offer the thanks of Mrs. Gregg and myself for those splendid sentiments.
I am as ever
