Notes
-  John Cochrane (1813-1898), who represented New York in the House of Representatives from 1857 to 1861, held various political appointments throughout his career. He writes to the former Senator from Missouri, Carl Schurz (1829-1906), who was appointed secretary of the interior under President Hayes, not only to congratulate Schurz on his Cabinet appointment, but also to say that he sees Schurz's "wise & potent presence" reflected in President Hayes's inaugural speech. Cochrane seems to attribute many of the principles espoused by the new president to the influence of Mr. Schurz.
