Joseph Eve, U. S. Charge d'Affaires to Texas
Your message to the present Congress of the U. S.5@ has reached
me, all here who have read it are much pleased with the prin-
ciples avowed, and very much gratified at the notice you have
taken of Texas.
When I received the appointment of charge d'affaires to the
Republic of Texas, (and for which I now sincerely thank you)
it was rather unexpected, I therefore left my business badly
aranged in Kentucky, and as there is no serious dificulty with
the U. S. and Texas, and as the President of Texas as well as
his secretary of state will leave Austin in ten days for the lower
country and will spend most of the summer and fall in Galveston
and Houston I should feel gratified to get your permission to
visit Kentucky some time during the present year in order to
arange my business there. I would prefer going about the first
of July and would only ask leave of absence for about sixty days
But would feel thankful, to be permitted to go sooner or later
as you may permit me, Even with your authority to leave here
I would not do so should any thing arise between the two gov-
ernments, requring my attention and presence
