There isn’t anybody especially under consideration for appointment to the vacancy on the Supreme Court, I think it is of the District, due to the resignation of Justice Hoehling.
I do not think any final decision has been made, but I am advised that the State Department is exploring the matter of the shipment of some airplanes which have been bought by the Mexican Government and some arms or munitions or something that they have also bought, which are in this country, into Mexico.
There doesn’t seem to be very much news this morning. Mr. Sanders suggested that as Congress wasn’t in session now, news was not very plentiful.
I would especially like to thank the press for the very generous way in which they handled the little Christmas message that I sent out. It was carried in all the papers which I happened to come in contact with, and I am receiving quite a good many messages of appreciation and compliment on the message.
