Col. Robert McKee, the governor’s distinguished private secretary, leaves this morning for a brief visit to North Alabama, with the hope of getting a few days of rest. The colonel had not been out of the city but once or twice and then on the most urgent business, for about eight years. He is at the executive office from 8 or 9 o’clock in the morning till 1 or 2 o’clock, and then from 3 or 3:30 till 8 o’clock, and often later. He does a wonderful amount of work, and he is systematic in it all. There never was a private secretary who had such a system in filing away and keeping the records of the executive office as Col. McKee. Col. McKee deserves will his contemplated pleasure visit to what Representative Bennett, of Cherokee, calls “God’s county.”—Montgomery Dispatch, of February 20.
