Seguin Texas
April 20th 1868

J.P. Richardson

Dr. Col
I find upon consultation with Mr. Raymond that he is willing to accept the position of Beauro Agent. My opinion of him you have already heard.

Permit me to suggest that he be appointed and act in that capacity at this place. Never since Lee's Surrender has there been a greater necessity for such an Officer in our midst; as at present, we see nothing (in black ones) except the quiet essence of gall and bitterness. Freedmen are afraid of their own shadow.

Truly Yours
