I feel confident you will exert all your powers and do what is right and…see the state return to all her rights & privileges under your guidance…what course has been chalked out. What policy [does] the Federal Govt. intend to adopt towards us. Whether there will be a convention etc…I am the lore earnest about this because it may determine my own course.
