Mr. Samuel B. Wallace, 
c/o Board of Public Service,
St. Louis, Mo.

My dear Sam:-

     I have your letter of June 19th, with refer-

ence to Major Charles Young, and a colored volunteer 

regiment for service with Mexico.  I know very well 

the splendid services heretofore rendered by Major 

Young and the fact that he is one of our most splendid 

officers of the regular Army.  I will take this matter 

up with the Secretary of War along the lines suggested 

by you and do anything I can to assist you as indicated 

in your letter.  I do not know of course, whether there 

will be war with Mexico or not, but if there is I am 

quite sure that opportunity for Colonel Young will be 

given.  I at least hope it will.

With kind regards and best wishes, I am
Very truly yours, 

L.C. Dyer
