Sunday, November 6th, 1898

Drives both forenoon and afternoon and a quiet evening at home. Tried in the morning to take several of the Senators out; but Senator Davis was hard at work in his shirt sleeves with a cigar in his mouth and a typewriter at hand, over his doctrine of military occupation. . . . He thought he must spend the whole day on it. Judge Day was even harder at work with his typewriter, and gave promise of making his response pretty long, however easy it might be to make. Frye had gone to church, and Gray had made some social engagement. In the evening I made a few notes myself as to the debt question and as to Manila, but wrote nothing out, preferring to see first whether the others covered all the ground.
