To Thomas Ewing 
Dear Sir: April 10. 1849
I have been requested to say something to the Department in relation to the Land offices and officers at Kaskaskia in this state. They are a great distance from me, and not in my district; so that my information is too limited to enable me to speak properly on the question. Cols. J. L. D. Morrison, and R. B. Servant  are two good and true men residing in the district; and I have concluded to indorse in advance, whatever they may concur in saying to the Department in relation to those offices. Your Obt. Servt.
