[George Q. Cannon]
Reached Washington early in the morning. ... I received a dispatch from Prest. Taylor stating that my letter had not been received concerning the libel case and therefore my dispatch could not be understood and telling me to use my judgment. I sent him another dispatch to which he replied in the evening in cipher – "Your letter received. Will guarantee five thousand on total expenses."
