Dear Sir

I enclose you all the papers necessary to obtain the discount for Mr Morton mentioned in my last letter.

I have looked at the law relative to the pay of Congressmen, and do not think Mr Morton can draw any pay before the regular session. You can talk with Mr Olive and satisfy yourself on this point, and if you deem the security good, Mr Morton would like the accommodation. The note is a three months, and he thinks he can meet it then, if you wish it. Let me hear from you soon.

Yours truly

John McConihe

Dear Sir

If you conclude to accomodate me, in this matter, you can deduct interest at twelve per cent per annum.

If the United States Government is worth anything I consider the Security first class and I presume the aforesaid Government is very good, even though it be involved in a Civil war.

Hoping you may be able to "do the paper"

I am Sir Very Respectfully Your Obdt Servt

J. Sterling Morton
