My dear Mr Dash.,
The Lewis & Clark people have got 50,000 buttons from Newark. N.J. which could just as well have been made here* I have a certain letter from Mr Goode in which he claims to give home manufacturers the preference. Now I would have made just as good or better buttons for less money had they given rae a chance to bid on them* Doubtless there was a graft .In ft* I am having a facsimile of Goode »s ""etter made and pTor itm to send copies together with certain facts to every merchant paper and others interested also to every congressman and senator, and I propose to fight this thing not so much for that particular order but for the principle in it* It is a di.—dl shame that they send Oregon money east when ft can be spent at hone and build up our own state. I shall also interest the labor unions and propose to either win or die right in this ditch.
The purpose of this letter is that in view of your position and tho interest you have shown me in the past I ara willing to talk this over with you' provided you intimate a desire to do so.
Very sincerely yours
