Mr. Hunter to Mr. de Geofroy

Sir: Referring to your note of the 5th instant, concerning the alleged employment of certain persons in endeavoring to organize an expedition to Mexico, I have the honor to inform you that it is stated in a letter of the 8th instant, from the War Department, that whenever authenticated facts are submitted to that department they will receive due consideration. It is presumed that at the time this letter was written the memorandum which you left with me containing further representation on the subject had not been received, and it is believed that the statement therein contained will engage the attention of the Secretary of War.

Accept, sir, a renewed assurance of my high consideration.

W. HUNTER, Acting Secretary.

Mr. L. de Geofroy, &c., &c., &c.
