EXECUTIVE MANSION, WASHINGTON,
HON. SECRETARY OF WAR.
SIR:--Can we not renew the effort to organize a force to go to western Texas?
Please consult with the general-in-chief on the subject.
If the Governor of New Jersey shall furnish any new regiments, might not they be put into such an expedition? Please think of it.
I believe no local object is now more desirable.
