TYLKR ON HKNTON. 19 How clearly Mr. Tyler's mind was made up as to his future "There lives not a man on earth ao long and so deeply committed against a national bank as Mr. Tyler,—not even General Jackson or Thomas H.

Dear Bobebt :Your letter of the 27th May is before me, enclosing the article from the Herald on Col. Henton's opinions of the administration.
