From atjh.imoIe we made our
wvay to the National Capitol. H-erec
we had much to init;:irest us, tnot on

in the social walks of life.
After visiting thme Treasury
D~epart ment, Coreor'an' s Art
Building, the White Hou)Ise, and
the Ordinance Museum, we repair
cd to the law office of OUr friead,
Maj. Wmn. E. Earle, formerly of
Greenvill. In Ihis quiarter's we
found a warm welcome, and he
spared no pains to make our visit
b)oth lelasant and pr1ofitable. Maj.
Earle is one of the most thoroughly
educated and refined gentlemen
that clJaims membership to the
strong bar' of Washington. The
success with which he has met
since moving there, is sufricient evi
dence of his very sterling ability.
But then with this fact our people
are well acquainted. His family
circle is suchm as to char'm every
one that enters it. We found it
bdth- entertaining and edifying. It
could not be otherwise, when we
