BRYAN TO HAYES
Wharton, Texas, Jan. 9th, 1883.
Yours of last month directed to me at Independence followed
me onward until it reached me in Galvston. I communicated its
contents to Ballinger there. Judge Ballinger did not go on to Ann
Arbor as he expected, having been detained by business first and
sickness afterwards. Mrs. Ballinger, Miss Betty and the two
younger children Tom and Laura are (and have been since June)
at Ann Arbor. I deeply sympathize with you and your wife on
account of sickness of Fanny. I am attached to her and would
like to hear from you of the course of her sickness. I hope
sincerely that before this reaches you she has entirely recovered.
Willie and I are here on my farm. I spend here a good deal of
my time with him. In a short time I shall go to Galveston, and
from there to Brazoria Co. I left Laura and Guy in Galveston,
but expect now they are in Brazoria on visit to their relatives.
If you write me on receipt of this to Perry's Landing, Brazoria
Co., I will get it before I leave that County.
Willie sends his regards to you and Mrs. Hayes. Present me
most kindly to your wife and Fanny; tell the latter that Hally
is still at Hollins Inst., Botetourt Springs, Va. I receive most
favorable accounts from the teachers as to her health and im-
provement in every respect. I am beginning to lose my interest
in public matters, and I think that the country is safe in the
hands of others. I did feel the deepest interest in your success,
and that your name should go down as reformer and benefactor.
I was desirous of helping you in my humble way, and in obscurity
did what I could, but perhaps the next President will do what
I wish you had done-you commenced.
Guy M. Bryan.

Galveston, July 6th, 1883.
I send you today a Galveston News which notices your recent
address. I also call your attention to sentiment of the orator
of the occasion here. I shall leave shortly for Hollins (Botetourt
Here’s what’s next.
