John Forsyth to Anthony Butler, 27 September 1834

No. 85. 

Mr. Forsyth to Mr. Butler.

Department of State,



I transmit, herewith, sundry documents in support of a claim of Mr. Pardon C. Greene, of Key West, Florida, upon the Mexican Government, for outfits, repairs, and stores furnished by him to the Mexican brig of war Herman, which is represented to have put into Key West in distress, in January, 1828.

You will give the claimant the benefit of your good offices with the Government of Mexico, towards procuring that immediate payment of the demand which its nature and origin seem to call for.

I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,


Anthony Butler, Esq., 

Chargé d'Affaires of the United States, Mexico.
