James Treat to Mirabeau B. Lamar, February 1840

Confidential

Mexico February 15th 1840.  

My dear Sir.  

I have the pleasure to wait on you with the


Enclosed duplicates, Seven in number, being, (with


those already transmitted) copies of all my letters


to you, except one of the 7th inst, accompanying, and


Explaining, three copies of Letters, written to the Secy


of State Mr Canedo, one of which only had been sent


him, up to the above date. Duplicates of this letter,


and the accompanying papers No 1 & 3 I shall


have the honor to transmit you, in a few days,


together with other copies of [the] same character,


all which Shall then be explained at more length

as by this days [sic] post I have only time to prepare this


despatch. Hereafter my duplicates shall follow


their originals, more promptly, and regularly,


than heretofore. As the season is advancing, and


the weather becomes milder, my health is better


and I shall not have, I hope and trust this difficulty


to contend with. The copies I send you here-


with were taken by a foreign Gentleman, a


friend who is entitled to my entire confidence.


The originals were all written in great haste and


confusion, when my health was quite indifferent,


and I therefore claim your indulgence for the matter,


as well as manner, of their contents & execution.


With the copies, I trust, they will be found intelligible.
