Mr President:

My physician has put me to bed insomnia and general nervous exhaustion. I am ordered to lie here, sleep, eat, and think of nothing least of all, Mexico. Several weeks of this, and then a long vacation.
Under the circumstances, there is nothing for me to do but to ask you to relieve me of further duty. I have done little or nothing, and there can be nothing I could do now, I think, though I would so gladly have had a part in helping at the settlement of a troublesome problem.
As soon as the doctor will let me, I will look over my accounts, and seal them to Mr. Forster, together with three or four hundred dollars I must return.

I am, Mr President,
Wm Bayard Hale


To The President
