Adams Papers

To John Adams from Thomas Terry Davis, 20 February 1801

House of Representatives Feby 20th. 1801


I understand that the Senators & Representatives from Tennessee and Mr Marshall of Kentucky have united in Recommending Mr Roen and Mr McClung as proper persons to be nominated Jud[g]e in the Sixth Circuit—This was done without any Consultation being had with Mr Brown & the Representatives from Kentucky, which I deem unfair. I consider Mr Roen one of the first Law Characters in the Western Country & a man of stern integrity—next to Mr. Thurston I would choose him, had my opinion any weight—

I am respectfully / yr obt Sert.

Tho T Davis
