Dear Sr:-
Your favor of April 29th, offering to look up Spanish spies
in the state of Florida, duly received. The Governor has no funds what-
ever with which to employ such an agent; and consequently I beg leave
to return you herein the papers enclosed.
I should suppose that the war Department at Washington would
have means to employ such an officer. I would be pleased to consider
the matter had the Legislature made any appropriation looking in that
direction.
Very truly yours,
W.D. Bloxham
