done. No treaty at present will be


entered into. So Mr Webster informed me


on Saturday. Do then leave a letter giving


me leave of absence sent to the Consuls


at Orleans for me. You promised me to


be with you & there may be need of


personal friends.

Genl Waddy Thompson goes


out as Mr Tyler informed me in


the Frigate Macedonia, who would


cruise from Vera Cruz to Galveston and


await his orders. He will demand the


instant & immediate release of the Ameri-


can Santa Fe prisoners[.] The Government


here are desirous to get a blow at Mexico[.]


They will seek the opportunity you may


depend.

We [?] both desire to be remembered


to yourself and lady. T[r]usting to your


valor[,] judgment & patriotism we have


the strongest confidence in the success


of the Texan arms.

May God prosper you & yours


James Reily
