HOUSE - TUESDAY AFTERNOON
CARSON, February 10
The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the special order - Mr. Fisher in the Chair - and took up the first bill on the list. [Some seventy-five ladies have swarmed into the House, and the process of swarming still continues. I have a presentiment that I am to have an exhaustless stream of weak platitudes inflicted upon me by Young Gillespie and other unmarried members. - MARK.
