think well of the President. He has a face like a Hoosier Michelangelo so awful
ugly it becomes beautiful with its strange mouth, its deep-cut crisscross lines
and its doughnutcomplexion. I do not
dwell on thesupposed failures of his
government. He has shown an almost supernatural tact in keeping the ship afloat
at all. I more and more rely on his idiomatic Western genius."
