Handwritten letter from a former assistant to Denver when he served as the Secretary of State of California. Wood references a letter Denver, now a U.S. Congressman from California, has sent to Governor Johnson regarding Denver's appointment to the Commission of War Debt. Wood advises Denver to not give too much time to the commission's work; that he was selected because "your name would give weight and influence to the commission." He also writes of difficult dealings with the Vigilance Committee of San Francisco. "They have banded themselves together, taken the law into their own hands, and have commenced the work of hanging and banishing with a vengeance" adding that the Governor issued a proclamation declaring the Committee to be in a "state of insurrection but could obtain no assistance from the United States with men or arms....The affair of Phil Herbert affair is creating some excitement. The Black Republicans Vigilance Committee men and such like are awfully down on him and endeavor to make political capital out of it." Lastly, he asks, "whether there is any chance to get Fillmore to decide on a union of parties opposed to the Abolitionists."
