Buchanan, he saidc " I did what I
couhl.to further the election of Mr.
Buchanan, and do not think I ever
will have cause to regret it. He is
a careful, conservative man, so much
so, that he might be considered
slow in arriving at a conclusion on
matter of public moment. I
learned to know him quite well dur
ing, the four years that he served
with me on the committee ot ways

general assemblies, and did a great
