"There not a hred of truth in Harriman's statement. I never asked Harriman, directly or
indirectly, for a dollar. The icord 'practical' had reference to Harriman 's reluctance to come and see
me because he felt my feelings might be hurt. His request was made to me that I should help him
gel money from the National Committee.
' turned to Mr. Lceb and asked him to call up Mr. Bliss or Mr Cortelyou and say what Har
riman had said. I suggested that he ask if it wouldn't be possible to hefp Harriman out. Harriman said
he had borne so much of the expense he couldn't bear any more. I was told that they would see what
could be done.
"There was not one word spoken having any reference to any collection of funds for the na
tional campaign. On the contrary, the request was from Mr. Harriman to kelp him out in the State
"Mr. Loeb told me the Republican campaign was running badly and that Mr. Harriman
wished to see me. 1 saw Mr. Harriman at Mr. Harriman s request, made through Mr. Loeb, who ua,,
present during all or most of the interview.
"At that time every one knew that I was certain to carry New York. There was doubt
about Higgins. Mr. Harriman slated that he had to have more money for that campaign and that
would have to ask Cortelyou or Bliss to help him out."
