LETTER I.

WILLARD'S HOTEL, WASHINGTON,

} December 29, 1857.

MY DEAR

No matter why, or wherefore; but here I am in Washington, (a place not worthy of the name,) and have had an interview," as the phrase goes, with the bachelor President of this great Republic—the wifeless father of a great and growing family of thirty millions of people! What an inspiration of dignity in the consciousness of being the Head of such a nation! A man of authority, of patronage, and of power-one of the chiefest Chiefs of the civi. lized world.

Mr. Buchanan is an old man-too old to be Presi. dent-too old to flutter the ribbons of your “fair correspondent,” although it is said that many “caps are set for him” upon younger heads than mine.
