Youngstown, Trumbull County. Ohio.
June 2d. AD 1805.
Herewith is sent you a letter from Samuel Huntington Esquire, the chief judge of this State. Should it make on your mind, an impression favorable to myself, it will give me pleasure; and should you think proper to confer on me the appointment, which he has found inconvenient to accept, I trust you will find your confidence not misplaced.—
With great sincerity and respect I am Sir your very humble Servant.
