nominations. If Benton and his friends are


satisfied with Polk's nomination & it creates any


allarms with the Whigs they may pass the


resolutions & annex Texas to get clear of the


question. I received a few days since the


money you had sent me for which I


feel greatly obliged to you. It came in very


good time. Mr Miller received the $200


you sent him & left on the 29th instant


for Texas via North Alabama where he


wishes to spend a few weeks. Charles will


come on with me as it will be cheaper


to come the route I shall travel than


the one Mr Miller took. I hope to be


able to leave in a few weeks. Present


my kind regards to Mrs. Houston.

Yours very truly


Henderson

P.S. May 30th. We have just learned that G.M.


Dallas has been nominated by the Convention


at Baltimore for V.P. He is for immediate an-


nexation. The Treaty &c will be taken up in


a few days. I learn that Benton says he is well


pleased with the nominations. The democrats are


all in the best spirits. We have not heard


from Texas for some time.
