will recollect that Mills was the only "Fillibuster" from Texas.
He is a chivalrous fellow of strong feelings. Tell him also from
me, whenever any one carries to him a letter from me, if integrity
ought to be used and I don't write it, it is because I cannot con-
scientiously do so. I will never impose upon him knowingly in
the smallest degree. In regard to railroad from San Antonio to
Rio Grande, should he at any time want me to give facts, truths,
etc., etc., let him ask me and I will speak for his interest as well
as for the road. I mention this now because I gave a letter on
the subject yesterday, and it will be before him. I received a
letter from Dudley yesterday in a joyous happy strain. May
he get a good office for the sake of his family and his own. I
called on Geo. Jones to stay two days, but remained a week. My
visit was pleasant, reminding me of "the college times." I could
hardly realize however that his stalwart boys were his. How
times bring events, and events shape destinies of men. On what
threads hang our futures. I saw and spent a pleasant night with
Matthews at his home at Glendale. If George could have spared
the time, I think I would have spent a day at Kenyon; the last
time I was there I was with Rud. Hayes, my classmate. We went
from Cincinnati when you were his partner. Now he is President.
Please say to him from me, the man in the Post Office at Brenham
is untrustworthy, and additional papers will I suppose be for-
warded on that subject from there.
Enclosed you will find a letter on business41 which please pre-
sent to him and ask him to read it. Tell him, he must not forget
to write me occasionally and that when he wishes, I can be as close
as an oyster.
Guy M. Bryan.
