James Buchanan Family Papers, Part 1 James Buchanan
Description
Letter from James Buchanan to Harriet Lane Johnston chastising her for her “slight despondency” and offering advice to avoid it; saying that Judge Black and Mr. Shunk arrived late and sure Mr. Shunk can handle the work; expressing sorrow that business forced him to cut short his visit to her (accompanied by Becky) and forego the one to Philadelphia; noting that he has seen only Wilberforce of the Nevin family; hoping that no one including Wilberforce will vote for Geary but for his choice, Clymer; noting his visit to her sister seemed to produce an improvement in her feelings for him and happy that the boys will be sent to New Hampshire; expressing joy that she has the silk handkerchiefs and stockings; quoting from a letter from Laura Pleasonton that Mrs. Ellis was in New York “fat & well". With envelope addressed to 120 Park Street, Baltimore. Annotation on envelope: “Oct 2/66 Just before Bby was born & before dear Uncle’s visit to us. Judge Black and dear Uncle’s life.” Wheatland.

Letter from James Buchanan to Harriet Lane Johnston explaining the mystery of his stockings, slippers, and books arriving without a note because her letter was “missent”; pretending outrage that Mrs. Ellis “carried away her picture that hung in the big dining room”; noting that he was right in Harriet’s inability to see the truth about the “noble captain”; commenting that he was pleased with his visit and that she “elegantly fixed” and “happily married”; looking forward with a “cheerful winter” with Rebekah and Mr. Shunk; planning to go to Philadelphia; admonishing her to tell Mrs. Ellis not to take Montgomery Blair to the Stantons because he abuses Mr. Stanton. With envelope addressed to 120 Park Street, Baltimore. Wheatland, 27 October 1866 Wheatland.

Description
Letter from James Buchanan to Harriet Lane Johnston rejoicing that “his namesake” has been baptized; noting that Mrs. Shunk did accompany her husband to Washington as Mary Black supposed; expressing happiness that “little Frank Scroder has recovered; conjecturing on the whereabouts of Miss Snyder, probably with her sister Mrs. Elsegood; elated that Henrietta has gone to Baltimore and might find a beau; repeating the gossip from Blanche Nevin that Harriet Lane had married Octavius Norris of Baltimore; thanking her for the cigars and cheese even though he did not like them, and the stockings, which he did, praying that she will “send me no more cheese”; and hoping his new-found relationship with Mrs. Lane will continue. With envelope addressed to Mrs. Harriet E. Johnston at 120 Park Street, Baltimore. Wheatland. 19 January 186[7].
