Geo[rge] G. Mackenzie
[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Congressmen will show whether they have at heart the honor of the State or the S. P. interest. The letter is planned partly to be a bait for a[illegible]son, Topeka & S.”Fe” and Denver, Rio Grande influence on our side, and, if published, will probably have some such effect. I have also got a letter partly written for the Chicago Inter-Ocean. It will have at least one new point that will astonish people – and amuse perhaps – in the Zolaesque fashion. Can you find out if these letters are published, and let me know. I have no way of learning, and it is of no use to ask those terrible beings, the editors, to send a copy of their paper. I will also simultaneously send a short letter to the Times repeating my new point – zolaesque – so it will have a double chance.
