Summary:This is a letter dated December 21, 1843 from James K Polk to John P Heiss. Polk marks the letter as confidential as he explains the importance of selecting the appropriate editor for a paper called the "Union." He says the paper would be a strategic voice for the Democratic party in the state of Tennessee, and that the public must remain unaware of what is being arranged by the parties. Polk would go on to become the 11th president of the United States in 1845.
