Mrs. Newman as I said arrived later unprepared and much fatigued. She arose and began her opening speech (and as you know her habit of speech is not very direct). She was soon informed by a man present that she had only fifteen minutes to speak. This interruption was not helpful to Mrs. Newman. Again she was called to by the same man "time up" and at last the man cruelly said "Madam I must call you to order". Upon this our friend took her seat and burst into tears when some kind ladies present went to her and accompanied her to the open air.

I have seen her several times since and she is just as she always is sweet and most sensible I thought I would write you as I feared you would hear of the cruel rumor and knew how it would grieve you. With sincere affection

Will you present my regards to Senator S. and your brother
