Will you do me the favor to get from Lucius Fetch College Book store, one or two dozen black India rubber pens, similar to the few I obtained from him on trial several weeks ago and enclose them to me in a letter. I received a letter in reply to my rebuke from the Rev. I at once ordered the correspondence to Dr.Bacon, requesting him to lay it before the association of Ministries that they might vindicate the cloth, although one who could thus use the'Five Points' slang had forfeited all claim to respect in his opinion to me as he saw by my letter, was a matter of perfect indifference, yet I considered it my duty to the clergy, to expose such an unworthy member. I have not a copy of his letter.
We are settled after a fashion. The boy, & baby delighted with the place, can hardly keep them in our reveries. The place is much improved since we left it twelve years ago.We have a nice garden & the Gen'l in his desire to please ever oversees its cultivation. He & his family seem disposed to cultivate our friendship, and I think officially and generally all will go well. I congratulate you on the result of your election! Foote attended West Point in 1822, but left to become a Midshipman at Annapolis. While in the Navy, the deeply religious Foote campaigned for temperance and the abolition of slavery.
In August 1861, Foote's friend, Navy Secretary Gideon Welles, placed him in command of naval forces on the upper Mississippi River. Foote worked with General Grant to cut the Confederacy off from its supplies in the West and Southwest. Injured in the attack on Fort Donelson (February 14, 1862), Foote led the naval assault on Island No. Promoted to Admiral, he was placed in charge of the Bureau of Equipment and Recruiting in Washington, D. Dissatisfied unless he was in active service, Foote died on his way to take command of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron (June 26, 1863).
