I therefore trust that it will not be made, or if it has been that Colonel Pardee will be at once discharged.
I do not intend to burden you with correspondence from this department, and trust that your protracted silence in reference to other communications need not be understood as indicating that its continuance now is not desired.
Very respectfully, yours,
WM. A. BUCKINGHAM,
Governor of Connecticut.
