of this State. I have been among them for several days. I have visited their plantations, I have conversed with them freely and fully, and I have enjoyed that frank, courteous, and graceful intercourse which constitutes an irresistible charm of their society.

This was followed by a note dated June 18th, part of which is here inserted: Though I didn't have the good-fortune to see Captain Noyes, I got the saddle, and have used it regularly ever since. It is very good, indeed, as I can testify from experience. It was not needed to keep you ever fresh in my memory, but I can assure you that it is not valued any the less because it came from you. The President's proclamation appointing James Johnson provisional governor of Georgia was issued this morning. I dare say you know a great deal better than I do who he is. I never heard of him before. ... I shall remain [here] till July 1st, and then shall go to New York on my way to Chicago, where I expect to arrive about the middle of next month. Major Eckert is to be my successor in office. Having been delayed in his departure for Chicago, he wrote his last letter to me from the War Department, on July 4th, as follows: Y
