589. Edward L. Pierce to William H. Herndon.

Milton Mass 27 May 90

Dear Sir

Yours of Feb 24 was duly received

I had mislaid Gov. Gardner's paper and so delayed my answer. [1]

In general Gov. G. is probably correct tho' perhaps faulty in details after so long an interval.

No doubt that was the dinner at Gov Lincolns [2] — but surely ER & Geo H Hoar were not present as they were out-and-out Free Soilers and very hostile to both host and guests

I do not think Everett [3] was there — as he did not speak at the Convention. If on the ground he would certainly have been in the programme.

Yours truly
Edward L Pierce
