Now it strikes me that if my friend Doct John is very earnest in his desire to become a citizen, he might do so by coming on here at once. Set him leave politics behind him, for nearly all our Judges are administration men--and as it will only cost three days absence from Richmond, I think the sacrifice would not be a great one. It will give me pleasure to do all I can, in aid of his views. I cannot say positively whether the whole process may not be required to be gone through "de novo" but even in that case it may be as well to do it here, as in Richmond.

I beg you will say all manner of kind things to him & to all friends around you.

Very truly -- yr friend
