papers and the Washington,
D. C, papers are full of It but it
is pretty clear to me that Hunt
has been doing nothing more or
less than ordinary attorneys and
lobbyists here do, and have been
doing for many years. They repre
sent clients who want to do bust
ness with the government on the
most favorable basis possible.
Hunt knows his way around
Washington and in government
circles and charged his clients a
fee for using that knowledge for
them. He seemed to be able to
deliver fairly well because of Ihe
cupidity and low calibre of cer
tain men holding high positions
of public trust. Hunt has been
smeared somewhat. I don't think
much of his "profession" and it
may be Just as well lo turn the
heat on such people. However,
let's not forget that Ihe real guilt
lies with those people Hunt was
able to "influence."
It seems likely now that this
session of Congress will adjourn
for Ihe remainder of Ihe year
along about the fifteenth of Octo
ber. I plan lo get home Just as
soon as 1 can after the business
of the session is completed. 1 still
expect to be able to visit all seven
counties of the Fourth Congres
sional district before the end of
the year. Meanwhile, this is the
last "Letter from Washington"
for several weeks and possibly
for this year.
