* Fine letter to Hon. R. J. Walker, regarding the Mexican
War, and reading in part: "I believe that the establishment of
a line of posts along the Sierra Madre, resting on the Gulf of
Mexico at Tampico, and the Pacific at any favorable point,
with operations to sieze and occupy the entreports of their com-
merce, would immediately bring us offers of negociation," etc.
