Juneau, Dodge Co. Wis
Nov. 14, 1860

Sir--

You need no wordy congratulations now-- The vote is far more emphatic and earnest--

I write to say that I think John C. Fremont at the head of the War Department in the government, would be found equal to any emergency.

I am for Fremont for Secty of War first and foremost.

In a time of profound peace I do not believe he would accept, but as the times are, I believe he would glory in it--

Yours Sincerely,
C Billinghurst
