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
