Concerning presidential appointments, especially the collectorship of the Port of New York, a plum patronage position. Sickles ends with, "I hope the President will find for Egan, a chance to rewrite the cruel verdict of the Senate." General Thomas W. Egan was tried for preparing fraudulent pay-rolls while acting as United States Weigher. When considering Johnson as a running mate, Lincoln sent Sickles to check on Johnson's sobriety. Sickles reported favorably. Johnson later relieved Sickles as military commander of the Carolinas for setting aside court orders. Bookseller Inventory # 003394
