White House Dinner for Cabinet and Supreme Court

January 21, 1864

Navy Secretary Gideon Welles writes in his diary that  “the President gave a dinner to the members of the Cabinet, judges of the Supreme Court, and a few others, with their wives.  It was pleasant.  A little stiff and awkward on the part of some of the guests, but passed off very well.”
