Thank you warmly for sending me Mr. Morgan’s letter, and also the reports from Judge Haff. They jump entirely with the best information I get and with my own judgment about the perplexing Mexican business, and you need not fear that we shall be misled or influenced by any advice we may get from Henry Lane Wilson when he returns to Washington. His position in the matter is already only too well marked.
How my heart echoes the wish that I might be with you on your cruise! I hope it will do you no end of good and bring you back as refreshed as I was when I got back from New Hampshire. I have worked it off again, but retain the delightful recollection.
I am sure that if the rest of the family were here, they would join me in the most affectionate messages.
Mr. Cleveland H. Dodge,
New York City.
