Department of the Interior
, July 19, 1877.

I regret to say that in any case there will be scarcely any prospect of my accompanying the President on that trip.[1] You know what a Department is and how difficult it is to bring up arrears of work. Mine is an especially lively shop. You will remember that I have the Indians on my hands—and so I have, while I am here, to bid good-bye to many of the pleasures of this world.

Cordially yours.

  1. A trip to Louisville, Ky., to open the Industrial Exposition, the subject mentioned in the omitted paragraph.
