unjust to your friends." This was signed
"Hunt." "Mr. Hunt," continued the

mor that I was going to China as United
States Minister. It puzzles me to know
how that story could have been evolved.

suggestion or intimation ever came to
me that the place would be tendered to
me. But to put a quietus on the whole
matter I do not hesitate to say that I
would not have the office under any con
sideration. America is good enough for
me. I have traveled in foreign iands,
and have seen a bit of most parts of the
habitable globe, and I say in all sincer
ity that the man who would swap Seattle
for Pekin as a place of residence is non
compos."
