[Apostle John Henry Smith]
I met Senators Tom Carter of Montana, [Jacob] Gallinger of New Hampshire, Teller of Colorado. With the later two I had nice free conversations on the position of Reed Smoot. They feel that he will keep his seat.
Reed Smoot, F. S. Richards and myself met A. S. Worthington and talked over the situation. Ed. Loose left for home.
