To William H. Seward [1]

Hon: W. H. Seward Springfield, Ills.
Dear Sir: June 4. 1849

Would you as soon I should have the General Land Office as any other Illinoian? If you would, please write me to that effect at Washington, where I expect to be soon. A private despach says the appointment has been postponed three weeks from the first of June for my benefit. No time to lose. Your Obt. Servt.
