My dear Sir
Astor wont try his cause until I am dead or worse off & our friend will not suffer me to leave here until the battle is lost or won. Give the enclosed to Bowne. I have shown your letter to Marcy & he says he has given you all the information you desire, & that he is possessed of. If Flagg can give me more you shall have it. You will do well enough. I have not forgotten McLane.
In haste yours truly
