Will you be good enough to convey to the President of the U. States my grateful acknowledgments for the flattering proof afforded me of his continued confidence by my reappointment as Governor of this Territory, & to assure him, that in the discharge of the duties annexed to that office, I shall never be actuated by other, than the purest motives of honest patriotism.

In a former letter, I had the honor to communicate the final determination of Mr. N. Salcedo Governor General of the Interior Provinces of New-Mexico, not to restore the fugitive Slaves, who had sought an Asylum in the Province of Texas, prior to a receipt of orders to that effect from the Government of Spain: & I now transmit for your perusal, a Copy of a letter to me, (No. 1) from the Parish...
I know not in what manner I could better conform to a request made of me, in a letter from Captain Abrahams, the Military Agent at this place, than to take the liberty of transmitting the Letter itself for your perusal.
