MY DEAR JAMES, ... I sent a few days since a copy of my speech on the Oregon question and Fremont's report to you and also to James. I hope they both have been received.
The Oregon negotiation has been wretchedly managed. The difference ought to have been adjusted long since; but as it is, it is so entangled, that much uncertainty still hangs over it. I cannot, however, believe that there should be such folly and mismanagement as to involve the two countries in war.
My speech has been received, I may say, with unbounded approbation. I wrote to James a few days since.
We are all well and all join their love to you including Cudy. She has enjoyed herself much.
