not done to embarrass you in any way. Others are in the field
now and you may wish to do otherwise. I wish you to know
that in what I may do, or have done in regard to filling office
here I have been influenced by the public good and your good
in getting good men in office.
Now, I have a personal request to make of you and Mrs. Hayes.
Miss Betty Ballinger (my niece) may visit Washington to spend
the winter on a visit to her Uncle Judge Miller, and her cousin
Mrs. Stocking. If agreeable to you and Mrs. Hayes, I would
like very much that you would show her such attentions as that
she may know you both. I want her to return from Washing-
ton feeling that you are worthy of the affection I bear you, and
the great confidence I have in you. She may go on in this month.
She is highly cultivated and I know that you will both of you
like her. I did not intend to write you so long a letter. I am
sorry Cornell was elected as standard bearer of the Republicans
of New York. I expected his election and balance of the ticket
defeated. I hope Matthews will be sent back to Senate. I take
for granted Sherman will be defeated and one of your party re-
Willie recently was seriously injured (his horse fell under
him) and his life for a while despaired of. He is now well and
at work. With affectionate regards to Mrs. Hayes and each one
of your family, I am, as ever your friend.
Guy M. Bryan.
