Where   would I find reference to Mudd being in DC and looking  for   Booth?

At the Conspiracy Trial on June 3, 1865, Marcus P. Norton  testified that 
was in his room at the National Hotel when: "A person  hastily entered my 
room on  the morning of the 3d of March, I  think.  He appeared somewhat 
excited,  made an apology, and said  that he had made a mistake; that he 
wanted to 
see Mr.  Booth. ... I  recognize the person, Samuel A. Mudd, as the man who 
entered my  room  on that occasion."   This can be found in Steers's "The 
Trial"  on  p 177.  Norton also testified about seeing Atzerodt and Booth  
conversation at the National Hotel.

William A. Evans  testified (p 174) that: "About the 1st or 2d of March 
-- certainly  before inauguration day -- I saw Dr. Samuel Mudd, with whom I 
have  a  slight acquaintance, drive past me as I was driving to the city in 
the  morning  ...  I let him drive past me, but I followed him up to the  
city, never  losing sight of him."  

The inauguration  took place on March 4th.
