District Attorney for the Eleventh Judicial District,


that being the county of Santa Fe. These


gentlemen are now on their way to enter upon


the discharge of their duties. To the former


is confided by the law, creating the county


of Santa Fe, the duty of its proper organization.


And I embrace the present opportunity to repeat


the request already made that you will instruct


the United States officers in Santa Fe to extend


every lawful aid to Judge Baird, which he may


have occasion to require, in furtherance of the


organization with which he is charged.

And, sir, I cannot close this communica-


tion without rendering to you the thanks of the


people of Texas for the zeal which you have


manifested, on all proper occasions, for our interests,


and especially for the favorable sentiments which


you have thought proper to express in your mes-


sage to the Congress of the United States at its


late session.

I have the honor to be, with high considera-


tion, your Excellency's obedient humble servant.

Geo. T. Wood
