be left upon the country long after you leave there. And your
administration in the main will be approved by good men South
and North. I have been tolerant when we have differed, for I
knew something of the difficulties in your way, and I had an
abiding faith in your heart and head, and sure of justice and
right. You refer to these difficulties. Under all the circum-
stances, you deserve the plaudit, well done good -and faithful
With sincere regard to Mrs. Hayes and your children.
I am as ever yours sincerely,

P. S. My daughters are at Hollins Institute, Va. I regret
that my pecuniary condition has prevented me from taking Laura
to Washington. Hally has the pictures of Fanny and Scott
framed hanging in their room at Hollins. She will never forget
her visit to Washington. Should better days come to me, I will
carry them to see you at Fremont, but I cannot now say when that
will be. I am in debt, and for their sakes must get out before I
pass oyer the river, or they will be penniless orphans, and I do
not know what will be their future-this weighs upon me.
BRYAN TO HAYES
Dear Rud: Galveston Feb 19/81
I thank you sincerely for the nomination of my nephew W. J.
Bryan for the office of Post Master at Brenham. He is worthy
& qualified in every respect for the office, & has the full confidence
of the Community where he lives. He wrote me that you received
& treated him most kindly.
I returned from the country day before yesterday to find my
noble little son very sick with scarlet fever following measles.
Should I lose him it will nearly break my heart He is better
I sincerely trust that your retirement from office will be pro-
ductive of happiness to you & your most excellent wife. No one
has been in her place who has made such impressions on the
American people for good as she,
As ever yours
Guy M Bryan
