appears to be broken reed. I have not been able to ascertain the authorship of that Expositor article, altho’ I have had some inquiries made. I have started my little paper here, and, if there had been any use in it, would have had some articles in favor of recession. But they would be profitless at present. We must trust to Congress and the new Administration, or nothing. I will soon have an article upholding Noble’s policy. Should Cleveland adhere to his announced policy of not appointing persons who held office under him before, that would “let out” Irish who was a commissioner in reference to the San Francisco post office. The idea of Irish as Land Commissioner is so monstrous that I can hardly believe it possible. It would ruin the Democratic party in the West.Yours TrulyGeo. G. Mackenzie
