Yours of January 30th has been received,
I have looked into your case, and find
that no action having been taken during the last Congress, your
papers are on file in the Secretary's Office, On Monday I will
obtain an order from the Senate taking them from the files and
again referring them to the Committee on Claimp, in the hope that
some prompt action will there be taken.

Dear Mrs, Boyd;-
I have received yours of the 24th, with reference to your
clafrf now pending before the Seate Committee on Ola.1 9
The Committee has had no miti~'% for rany weeks, because
the tine of |he Senators is fully taken xp in the discussion of
the tariff bill, and it is not likely that arW meetings will be
held until that is disposed of. We meet in the Senate at ten
oelock in the morning and sit untij six or seven in the evening,
and it is not possible to Bold any Comnittee meetings, and they
have been suspended for the present.
There are a great many cases ieforo the Cnmiittee, and 1
dq not know when yours will be rea.sed, but when it eanes up it
will receive careful and attentive eonsi duration,
Your roeepetfull y,

Dear Mrs. oyi; -
I have received yours of the 18th inst., relative to
your claim, no'w pending before the Sen-r e.
It has been referred to the Committee on Claims, ~s I
h.ink I informed you during the last session, but I d not know
whether any action will be tAken during the coming session. The
prospect of bringing the case to a speedy conclusion does not
look very favorable, out I will continue to use my efforts to have
it considered and actedupon.
I apreci.te your apprehensions as to the future, and
share them with you. The defeat of the Democratic ctuse uiler
Mr. Bryan was, in my judigent, a great clawnity to the country,
and I do not look for any greit improvement in our condition under
a Republican Administration.
Yours very truly,

Dear Mrs. Boyd;
Yours of the 27th, relative to the claim whidh you have
before Congress, has been received.
It is difficult to secui e the payment of these old
claims, (as I have stated before), but I know of no other advice
to give you than to continue your efforts, and I presume Mr. Davis
will endeavor to assist you if you call the matter to his atten-
tion. I regret that the efforts already made have not been more
successful, and that I am not in a position to assist you further
with reference to it.
Thanking you for your kind conv-atulations upon my ap-
pointment as a member of the Canal Commission, I remain,
