John Forsyth to Anthony Butler, 14 January 1835
Mr. Forsyth to Mr. Butler.
Department of State,
January 14, 1835.
I transmit herewith the commission of John Stryker, appointed consul of the United States at Goliad, in Texas. You will request of the Mexican Government the usual exequatur for Mr. Stryker.
The United States ship Falmouth, Captain Rousseau, has been ordered by the Navy Department to proceed to Vera Cruz, for the purpose of taking you on board and carrying you to New Orleans.
Your despatches to No. 83, inclusively, with the exception of Nos. 81, 58, 54, 53, 52, 23, 16, have been received. It is desirable that duplicates of the missing numbers should be communicated to the Department with all convenient promptitude, for your letters have become so numerous that it is necessary they should be bound.
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,
Anthony Butler, Esq.,
Chargé d'Affaires of the United States, Mexico.
Enclosed in MVB to the U.S. House of Representatives, 4 July 1838 (HRExdoc 351).
