|1.||Chase also enlisted Jay Cooke in his search for a "plain & light" enclosed conveyance for two passengers and a driver--"comfortable but not showy or costly." In Philadelphia, Cooke and his partner and brother-in-law, William G. Moorhead, purchased a suitably "modest" coupé that they shipped to Washington with the suggestion that they pay for it as a gift. Chase, who in his own words was "strongly tempted" for financial reasons to accept, replied that as a public officer he must refuse. He subsequently decided that his daughter could, with propriety, accept the gift--yet he determined also that the vehicle was too light for its intended use, and returned it to Cooke.
