To which in response when my turn came I said: You gentlemen seem to be surprised that there should be so perfect an understanding between our guest and myself. But there is nothing new or strange in that. It goes back, indeed, to his cradle and has never been disturbed throughout the intervening years of political discussion-sometimes acrimonious. At the top of the acclivity of his amazing career-in the very plenitude of his eminence and power-let me tell you that he offered me one of the most honorable and distinguished appointments within his gift. Tell them about that, Marse Henry, said he. With your permission, Mr. President, I will, I said, and continued: The centenary of the West Point Military Academy was approaching. I was at dinner with my family at a hotel in Washington when General Corbin joined us. Will you, he abruptly interjected, accept the chairmanship of the board of visitors to the academy this coming June What do you want of me I asked.

I promised him to think it over and give him an answer. Next day I received a letter from the President, making the formal official tender and expressing the hope that I would not decline it. Yet how could I accept it with the work ahead of me It. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN.
