Joliet Monday Evening April 7th 18/62
Hon Richd: Yates.
I returned home on Saturday, and had an interview with Mr Allen, and he pledged himself to me that he would do in the matter as I wished. I will come to Springfield on Wednesday and will then explain to you what I have done, and will endeavor to favor your interests in any manner that you may wish. Trusting that all may suceed to our entire satisfaction
I Remain Truly Yours &
Ira A W Buck
