Ill. June 19th 1841
Dr Sirs
Your joint letter of the 14th is rec.d. If I go to Kentucky, as I propose to do in a few days I cannot visit your place until about 1st. of Aug, at which time I will either make a sale of the to your Society, or allow you to lease it, and will give a certain portion for possessing & settleing it. If any of your people should want to make settlement before that time, they can do so, and we can no doubt agree upon terms, <​when I come over,​> as I intend to be liberal in my exactions.
As to ’s portion of the letter I have only to say that I shall not be a Candidate for Congress; but in justice to myself I will state that I have no control on, or interest in the Warsaw Signal, and never saw or knew the editors name until the morning of the day I reached . Mr. Aldrich of that place said to me [p. [1]]
