Your favor of 7th has followed me here where I have again permanently located myself.##I have sent the letter to eAton & asked him to do all he can in the matter of bringing influence to bear on the Committee & Congress & I will do the same.##I ahve also recommended that Professor Mendenhall be retained & have asked Eaton to write you on the subject.##I have sent Prof Mendenhall some soft carbon Buttons. These are all I have at present.
