173. John H. Bryant to Robert Boal.

Princeton, March 15 1866.

My Dear Sir

After some delay which I regret I have succeeded in finding an old file of our Princeton paper, from which I learn that Mr Douglas spoke here on Wednesday Oct 18th 1854. This fixes the date — I recollect that he staid at Tiskilwa six miles South of this the night before and a number of our Democrats went down the next morning and escorted him to this place

Douglas spoke first one half hour and was answered by Lovejoy one haff hour when Douglas talked till dark against time, Giving no opportunity for reply

Yours truly
John H. Bryant.
