Washington News

December 9, 1869

Summary

The Dispatch assures the end of Reconstruction and admission is only a matter of days.

Transcription

Virginia will undoubtedly be "admitted" very shortly. No reason exists why she should not be taken by the hand by a Radical Congress under present circumstances. You have referred already to the status of one of her senators (Mr. Johnston). I learn that the other (Mr. Lewis) is loudmouthed as to his unmixed Radicalism.--Washington Letter-- Baltimore Gazelle.
