[Communicated.] To John Henry Upshur, (formerly, and rightly, Nottingham,) Lieutenant in the Navy of the remaining United States of America. Myself, together with others formerly your friends, John, founding our faith in your integrity upon the rather fair promise of your youth, had entertained, down to a quite recent date, a faint yet lingering hope that your continued adherence to the miserable and tyrannous rule of Lincoln and his Cabinet might be referred to extraordinary and insuow wear one, too, although the warlike weapon is to me a comparatively novel acquisition; yet I warn you to guard this cartel always in your memory; for Providence, in these desperate times, may far sooner intersect our paths than either of us can dream of now and whenever and wherever he does, I fear not to invoke a just and retributive God to sustain and defend the right.

he dark beginning of your treason, had proudly held its head erect and high above all imputation of reproach. I shall not apologize for the stern utterance of strict, albeit, perchance, unpalatable, truth John; I only regret much that I cannot make this a verbal communication, instead of having thus to resort to a medium involving so much uncertainty of its ever reaching you. I would then audibly address you, as I do now by the only means at my disposal, in terms to this effect: --"John Nottingham, (no longer Upshur,) you have affixed the sole dishonor it has ever sustained upon the name of my family — a name which you were once graciously permitted to assume, but to which your accorded title justly expired the instant you basely sought to dishonor it.
