Indiana was classed as one of the doubtful States, and the result of the October election was looked forward to with anxiety by both political parties as indicating the trend of public sentiment.

Oliver P. Morton, the leader of his party in the State and one of the foremost statesmen of his day, was a candidate for reelection to the Senate of the United States, and he felt that his political life was at stake in the contest.As Chairman of the Republican State Committee, I conducted the campaign which resulted in the choice of a Republican majority in the legislature, and pointed unmistakably to the success of President Grant.

Senator Morton was greatly pleased, and when the returns were all in, he invited Mrs. Foster and myself to a private dinner at his residence in Indianapolis. When it was concluded, I accompanied the Senator to his private office, and he at once said that to me more than any one else was due the decisive party victory, and that he personally felt under great obligations to me which he desired to discharge. He told me to take the Blue Book (the register of federal officers of the United States) and select the office I wanted, and that without further trouble on my part he would see that it was given me.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
