To Josiah B. Herrick [1]

Dr. J.B. Herrick Springfield,
Dear Sir: June 3. 1849

It is now certain that either Mr. Butterfield or I will be Commissioner of the General Land-Office. If you are willing to give me the preference, please write me to that effect, at Washington, whither I am going. There is not a moment of time to be lost. Yours truly
