James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Samuel Smith, 26 May 1801

From Samuel Smith

Balte. 26. May 1801


I think It was determined to displace the present Marshall of Maryland Mr. Hopkins & Appoint Reuben Etting in his Place.1 I wish much that the Commission should be sent Immy. Permit me to report that this Change will give general satisfaction.

My Brother thinks that It will be prudent not to displace Doctr. Thomas2 Immediately. Let him stay in som⟨e⟩ time longer. I am sir, With great Esteem your Obedt. servt.

S. Smith
