P. S. I am glad you approve "the interview"; it was designed
to benefit you and it would pain me to know that it had not.
(Enclosure: E. M. Pease's Statement, June 13, 1877.)
Austin, Texas, 13 June, 1877.
I understand that the name of W. P. Ballinger, Esq., of this
State has been presented to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna-
tion of Judge Davis, as an associate [justice] of the Supreme
Court of the United States. Mr. B. has been engaged in the
practice of his profession in Texas for about thirty years, during
a large portion of which time I have practiced in the same county
with him, and it affords me pleasure to state that his reputation
is not excelled by any lawyer in the State. I think him [in]
every way qualified and believe that he would do honor to the
position. E. M. Pease.

My dear Guy: Washington, 4 July 1877.
I have been too busy to write you for some time. The date
reminds me of the Old Kenyon days: Once we had almost a
collision between Northerners and Southerners. Once we spent
it together with "Trow," Perry, and Jones, gathering and eating
mulberries and the like. We are now getting old, and it is I
assure you a happiness to think that I have done, and am doing
something, to make this people indeed one people.
New England's best citizens greeted us at Boston, Cambridge,
Providence, Newport and other places in a way (not deserved I
know, but,) that went to our hearts.
I hope to do good work yet. In four months I have made many
mistakes in details, in appointments and removals, but the gen-
eral current, the purpose has been in the right direction. Don't
feel hurt if I am silent too long. Write.
R. B. Hayes.
