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,
