    New Orleans, [LA.], March 31st, 1860.

    MY DEAR SIR: We have started an organization here to bring your name before the public as the proper man for the Charleston nomination.

    I have to day sent a communication to the “Constitution” on the subject.  It ought to be published by the Editor and I presume it will be.  I shall start at once for Washington and hope to arrive in a few days. 

    You must not consider this a liberty Mr. Hunter, because it is the duty of every man who has a stable in the country to do something to save it.  Your nomination is in my humble opinion the only one with which the party can succeed.  Believing so, I have taken the liberty of giving an impulse to the idea in the southwest and shall follow it up.
