The Letter signed by the Chief Justice Mr Cantine & yourself, requesting me to meet Mr T. at Philadelphia on the 12th Inst. was handed to me, by Judge VanNess, on saturday evening. The situation of my business absolutely forbids my leaving Washington before the 13th on the morning of which day I had made my arrangements to set out for N.York. Today or tomorrow the question of indemnifying the... Continue Reading

That I have been remiss in not writing to you oftener is most true but that you should from thence infer the least change in my affection for you would be most unjust, for if there ever was any subject on which there has been with me neither change nor shadow of turning it has is that of a steady and inflexible friendship & esteem for you & yours.

I thank you for the message communicated by our mutual friend Mr Targee. It is a source of high gratification to me to find one of the first and earliest ^strongest^ pillars of the Republican party still firm on its base & prepared to sustain that large portion of the political edifice which has hitherto rested upon it. I sincerely hope you will not fail to promulgate your opinion on the... Continue Reading
