Washington May 15 1860

My Dear S.

Stanton & Ranott have just left my room. They think now, & I am inclined to think with them, that we will be admitted within a couple of weeks. Also the land grants look better a little. I shall wait until Thursday if not longer to see the land committee. Latham voted against any amendment to the admission bill in the committee & will hence vote for admission. Others are disposed to vote for it who were supposed to be against it. Douglas made a powerful speech today in the Senate, annihilating Jeff. Davis & the fire eaters. It will make certain his nomination I think at Baltimore. Mr Clark now thinks of going home soon & return again in a few months. Ms. C. has had a few chills. Is now, today, better. An [XXXXX] crowd of people witnessed the debar nation of the Japanese. It was a splendid day, just after a rain, & rather am imposing affair for this dead city. Nothing new about Delawares. The Commissioner either don’t know what he will do or won’t say. Adams is hunting a wife as usual. Has been here only a month & has not got his matter before the committee. He is o o o o o o  & nothing more. Love to all, especially to my good wife.


Yours of May 7th received. Good bye.
