ment or State rights. I would then leave to the States the raising
of money for educational purposes, and confining the Federal Gov-
ernment or Nation to the powers given by the Constitution. I
think this is the only road of safety to our Country in the future.
You and I can only have interest in it through our children, for
soon we will cross the river and the places that knew us will know
us no more.
I read Curry on the "Blair bill," and noticed what he said in
favor-the least objectionable mode of disbursing the money would

Give my regards to Mrs. Hayes and to your children.
As ever your friend, etc.

P. S. Did you get my letter enclosing bill of lading for a barrel
of pecans sent to you by Miss Betty Ballinger via R. R., and has
the barrel arrived? I sent it on the eve of my departure for San
Antonio while I was traveling about. Direct your letters to Gal-
veston, care of Hon. W. P. Ballinger.
HAYES TO BRYAN
16 Feby 1885.
My dear Guy:
The pecans have never come to hand. My son Rud has under-
taken to look them up. I am sorry you took so much trouble with
them. I intended to plant a number of them, and see what could
be done with them here.
We enjoyed the visit of the Texas Colony, and am glad if they
found it homelike.
I am very busy just now. The long continued hard times have
brought embarrassment to two enterprises in which I am inter-
ested, and for some time to come I must give their affairs personal
I do not apprehend serious embarrassment of my affairs, but I
shall be somewhat straightened for a time.
As ever sincerely
R. B. Hayes.
