Herndonsville Scott Cy. Ky. September 24th 1823.
I send you, herewith, a copy of my address to the Legislature of this state.
As I hope the subject will be taken up at the ensuing sessession, and as I wish to be in possession of all the information possible on the subject, between this & that time, I should feel myself under particular obligations, & much oblige to you for any hints or ideas in relation to it.
I might, as an apology for troubling you, urge the universal interest which the subject claims; but I hope this is unnecessary. I am sir, respectfully yours, &C.
G. F. H. Crockett
P.S. I was a lieutenant in the 32d Regt. U.S. Ify. during the late war, & at one of your levee’s was introduced to yourself & lady by Col. Preston, but I dont expect you remember me among so many.
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM, as "Crockett F.G.H.".
