Pages 2 & 3 have much on the Mexican War headed: "The President's Message--No. III". And the back page has more on the: "Army Court Martial" of John Fremont which includes five letters signed; J.C. Fremont. Within these letters is one: "To Brig. Gen.S W. Kearny" which mentions in part: "The witness continued. Col. Fremont left me, to go to Gen. Kearny's quarters, desiring me, as soon as I had copied the letter, to send it to him by Mr. Carson. I copied it and gave it to Mr. Carson to carry...Did Mr. Carson go off with the letter, and do you know where he now is?...I believe he is now on his way to California..." with much more. This "Mr. Carson" is the famed Kit Carson.
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, very nice condition.
