were there and we had long talks. I went to see Cleveland yesterday about a thing of
which I have thought much and talked less and that was going into politics in this
country. To say he discouraged me in so doing would be saying the rain is wet. He
seemed to think breaking stones as a means of getting fame and fortune was quicker and
more genteel. I also saw her and the BABY. She explained why she had not written you

made much impression upon me--although I found out what I could expect from him--
that is nothing here but apparently a place abroad if I wanted it. But he thought Congress
was perfectly feasible but the greatest folly to go there.
