BRYAN TO HAYES
Galveston, May 22nd, 1877.
What I have said in the enclosed"8 was for your good; it will
benefit you greatly. You will carry with you by steady adherence
to your policy the South, whose members I believe will stand by
your administration in Congress. I know you are growing rapidly
in their confidence and affection. My brothers are your warm
supporters, and thousands whom I met at the State Fair last week
commend and support you. [John H.] Reagan stands by you, and
[Roger Q.] Mills told me he would cheerfully support you except
when he thought you were not right. (He was the member from
Texas who "fillibustered in the Count.")
I enclose you a letter to me from my friend in N. Orleans from
whose letter I extracted before your inauguration saying that he
had no confidence in you as Executive, etc. You will recollect it.
You cannot tell how gratified I am at the change. Please return
the letter unless you wish to keep it.
Present me affectionattely to Mrs. Hayes; as soon as I learn
about the lady at Austin I will write her.
As ever yours,
Guy M. Bryan.
P. S. I tell my friends Morton and Blaine will not induce
you to swerve.

associations of the occasion. What momentous events fill up these
41 years and how sadly they point to the follies and infatuations
which blot one of the proudest incidents of the struggles and efforts
