 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 10

Scope and Contents

Governor "invited about 40 of us to see & sup with him last night." Served soup, fish, turkey & oysterspie, and dessert of ice cream with preserved oranges float. Great deal of wine and champagne, so a jolly party. No women there. Several turnpike and bridge bills have passed. Alexandria Loudon & Hampshire Railroad will be voted on next week. Charles S. Moran elected as superintendent of penitentiary after long battle. A letter from Baldwin expressed ill humor because John advised him to leave the railroad.
