My dear Sir,
Frances

though she is yet unable to write has passed the
crisis of her illness and is considerably improved since I last wrote.
She sits up considerably and has no recurrence of her former symp-
toms and requires only to acquire the strength which she has lost.
The children

are both well, we do not yet send Augustus to

It appears that by the casting vote of the Vice President the
question of Mr Van Buren
Birth: 1782-12-05 Death: 1862-07-24
’s nomination lies upon the table.

and Webb seem to desire, attempting to exclude their paper
from the confidence of the party. I have pretty good reason
to know that if the letter were not written for publication,
its publication is not against the will of Webb. The effect
of it is principally still more to cheapen our little Governor

who has become a byword with everybody but the Ar-
gus here and the few whom Webb in that respect names.
The opinion seems to prevail generally among our friends
that we should nominate Granger
Birth: 1792-12-01 Death: 1868-08-31
and Stevens
Birth: 1794-09-01 Death: 1854-09-11
and that
we should take the field early.
Yours truly
