Sir I cannot help expressing my fears, whether our connecticut gentlemen will pay that attention to my memorial in congress as they ought to do, They well know my political creed in favor of the present administration and government, where they have heretofore distinguished themselves otherwise, my friends our side of the question will look-out for the unfortunate so embarrassed. The memorial will be presented by Mr. Jno. C. Smith it was politically tho’t best to have it so.

I am most affectionately the Presidents obedient Humble Servt.

P. Turner

Can I be Honrd to serve the public as you may appoint—
