My dear Earle
If the President wants to know of me who or what you are, I shall certainly give you my highest communications, but I cannot do anything which will lead directly or indirectly to the removal of Col. Ceshhill [?]. He is a son-in-law of my ___ Miller, who takes a deep interest in him and his affairs. Within the proper boundaries of this limitation I am ready to do for you all that I properly may, ___ as I can. Sincerely Yours M.R. Waite

W.E. Earle Esq
