"In its new Manhattan Building met last week the Executive Committee of Tammany Hall to discuss such routine things as a contribution to national Democratic deficit. Finally Secretary Eagan asked the chairman for permission to read a letter. He read: 'Because of ill health and on advice of physicians I resign as leader of Tammany Hall. George W. [Washington] Olvany.' Silence. Looks. Leader Olvany, present, said nothing. Followed then days of consternation, for a New York mayoralty contest looms. Nearly every district leader hoped for the succession. Meanwhile to Surrogate James A. Foley everyone, including Alfred E. Smith and James J. Walter looked for advice."
