|Horsfall, Charles G. (fl. 1900-1910)
|Writes that he is proud of Owen's studies and not surprised at Eddie "having a girl." Read that a captain is going to leave Port Clarence and try to reach the North Pole by the Northwest Passage. Mentions that anthracite was used as coal for the first time. Discusses rumors that the post will be abandoned this coming summer. Remarks on the Democrats' victories in Salt Lake and New York and their nomination of Carter H. Harrison, whom he is in favor of. He predicted that Tammany would win in New York but he does not think Roosevelt will succeed. He is amused that members of the council who were elected on a reform ticket voted themselves into office for six more months. Wants the boys to let him know if they need anything.
