July 5 Friday – In Saranac Lake, N.Y. Sam wrote to H.H. Rogers, suggesting guests for a planned cruise on Rogers’ new yacht, Kanawha.

How would Ex-President Cleveland do? Or Judge Howland? Or both? Tom Reid [sic Reed] would make a grand team—if they are friendly, & I don’t see why they shouldn’t be. Both have fought to victory & covered the field with the slain; both have retired to paths of peace, & they should not mind smoking its pipe & burying the tomahawk. Shall I write & invite them? Will Reid be willing? Would you mind asking him?
