Congressman Rutherford B. Hayes to Lucy Webb Hayes, January 10, 1866

WASHINGTON, D. C., January 10, 1866.

DEAREST:— Mrs. Crook was here yesterday looking after her husband's interests. She looks, acts, and appears very well indeed. You would like her, I am sure.

The House has been quite interesting these two days past. Have been nowhere, seen nobody. President Johnson's first reception last night. Didn't go. The truth is, this being errand boy to one hundred and fifty thousand people tires me so by night I am ready for bed instead of soirées.

Affectionately, ever,
