Mr. Olney to Mr. Bayard .


House resolution calls for information or correspondence showing whether you made not only the Edinburgh speech, but a speech at Boston containing these words: “The President stood in the midst of a strong, self-confident, and oftentimes violent people; men who sought to have their own way. It took a real man to govern the people of the United States.”

Nothing in the Department except in newspapers as to Boston speech. Send copy with any statement as to it or any additional statement as to Edinburgh speech that you desire to make. Resolution asks what action, if any, President has taken on the speeches.
