!A letter from Esteele B. Sargent Stubbs Reads: Buchanan was President at the time my father (John Boyle Stubbs) was an infant about 1 year old. Harriet Lane the President's niece was First Lady of the White House (President Buchanan was a bachelor). She was a great friend of my grandmother (Catherine Anne Stubbs). She use to come over and take my father over to the White House and when he got sleepy she would put him in her bed and lay down beside him. My father (John Boyle Stubbs) used to like to joke about it especially when he heard any of his friends bragging. He would say he had slept with the First Lady Harriet Lane.
Pres. Buchanan and Grandfather (Wm. Edward Stubbs) and Secretary Stanton and two others (I don't remember their names) used to play poker together. Grandfather (Wm. Edward Stubbs) was Chief Dispersion Clerk of the Treasury and Stanton was Secretary of State.
