Washington D.C. June 5. 66 Dear Sir: Yours of late date, asking for return of your papers Sc., was duly received. Enclosed please find the papers referred to. I am glad to know that you are successful and therefore do not need or wish for office. I regret that I could not accomplish something for you when you did wish it, as I am sure from what I learn of you that it would have been well deserved. -You say in your last letter that you would not take nothing from the present administration. Do you mean by that remark that you do not approve the course of the present administration, and therefore would accept nothing at it's hands? I shall be glad to hear from you always, or to serve you as I may be able. Very Truly Yours P.W. Hitchcock A. J. Harding Esq Nebraska City, Neb.
