History of the United States from the Compromise of 1850 to the Mckinley-Bryan Campaign of 1896 - Vol. 8

By James Ford Rhodes | Go to book overview

CHAPTER XI

Cleveland was inaugurated on March 4, 1885 and delivered his carefully prepared, patriotic and fitting address without referring to his manuscript or notes.1 Great interest was taken in the announcement of the first Democratic cabinet that had been selected since 1857. Thomas F. Bayard of Delaware, who had had an honorable career in the Senate for sixteen years, was appointed Secretary of State and he filled the place to the satisfaction of the public. At his death [ 1898], Cleveland, having retired permanently to private life, said, "I have never come into contact with a man who, at all times and under all circumstances, was the equal of Mr. Bayard in high and noble qualities, in singleness of purpose and in that honesty which, while it never obtruded itself, never wavered."2 Others who were associated with him, would have heartily endorsed this tribute: considering his service as Senator and Secretary and later as Ambassador to England it may be said of him as of Bayard, the French knight, that he was "without fear and without reproach."

The appointment of Daniel Manning of New York Secretary of the Treasury was due to Tilden's influence. Tilden might have had the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 1880 but he declined to have his name
