On recep't of your telegram regarding Myers I made application to Secretary of War in his behalf & received in reply that the appointment was vested in the Commander of the Post. He will be with you in a few days & I shall send this to confirm with you in making the appointment.
Permit me to congratulate you on the result of the election in your glorious state
May you realize every aspiration of yours
Very truly Yours
