Hon Thomas Corwin: This will introduce to your acquaintance my friend Simeon Francis, editor of the Illinois Journal. He will desire an interview with the new Secretary of the Interior, [2] with whom I am not acquainted. I shall be greatly obliged if you will procure him a favorable introduction to that gentleman, and show him any other attention which the press of your duties will permit. Your Ob't. Serv't, A.
