say this much to you, however, had you not said "I could aid you
in public affairs."
Sincerely your friend, etc.

P. S. May I ask you not to commit yourself in regard to fill-
ing the vacancy on Supreme Bench until I see you.

Permit me to introduce to your acquaintance and kindly con-
sideration my friend Mrs. Stevens, at present of Washington City.
She is the sister-in-law of E. T. Austin, Esq., of Galveston, for-
merly a classmate of your husband at Kenyon College. You will
please present her to your husband as such, and as one of my
friends, and oblige.
Most respectfully, your friend
Guy M. Bryan.
BRYAN TO HAYES
Cincinnati, May 5th, 1877.
When I came here I expected to remain only two days. I shall
leave on next Monday for St. Louis and thence home. George
[Jones] and family have been all kindness. George reminds me
constantly of himself as I knew and loved him; he, to me, has
not changed in heart or disposition. My intercourse with him is
delightful and full of warmth. I saw Matthews on eve of his
departure for Columbus. Today I will see Pendleton (we sat
together in Congress). Postponement of session of Congress in
my judgment wise and patriotic. I continue and shall persevere
in doing you all the good in my power.
To your true and noble hearted wife and yourself I present
my sincere thanks for your hospitality to me when in Washington.
Here’s what’s next.
