SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE
To E. S. Hamlin.
WASHINGTON, Dec'r. 2, 1852.
DEAR HAMLIN, Where are you? What are you about? The last I saw of you was that you attended a democratic celebration of Pierce's victory at Toledo. What did you mean by that?
I received yesterday a letter from Bigelow
of the N. York Evg. Post (Bryant you know has gone to Europe)
asking me to recommend a correspondent at Columbus. He says they
are willing to pay a fair price for a letter a week. I named you
to him; but expressed a doubt whether you could command the time;
but said you would recommend some one if you would not write
yourself. Had you not better undertake it? Let me know; and if you
cannot recommend some one who will suit
People here seem quiet enough.
Sumner and Seward dined with me today. Sumner is for
, Seward for lying low. Benton is here. I had a long talk with him yesterday Evening. He expects a regular setto on Pierce by all the vermin, and fears the result; though he expresses a good deal of confidence in the President elect. Tom Corwin tells me he has authorized the purchase of a residence in Kentucky, & means to leave Ohio! Bailey is well and thriving.
