It took several days for the final tallies to be telegraphed, and Cleveland wired Frank at Wells when he was confirmed the winner. She and Kate held a celebration party in their room. Cleveland invited Emma and Frank to his inauguration, on March 4, 1885, but no president-elect of the United States was going to overrule Miss Helen Fairchild Smith.

The publisher Joseph Pulitzer had introduced the style in the early 1880s, and although Pulitzer had supported Cleveland for president, Cleveland did not appreciate the publisher’s journalistic methods.

In addition to writing her frequently (both Frank and Cleveland were prolific letter writers), Cleveland visited her at Wells during his trips to Buffalo.

Frank had just returned to her rooms, and, having been caught in the rain, had struggled to get out of her wet clothing and get dried off.
