As many of the public offices are about to be disposed of, may I crave the favour of your influence? Having experienced your friendship on a former occasion, though I did not make use of the letter you favoured me with, I feel emboldened to offer you this additional trouble, which, I trust, you will excuse. I am unacquainted with the particular appointments which are, at this time, to be made,...
When I took the liberty to trouble you with my letter, I wished to leave much to the discretion of my friends, as to any appointment for which I might be offered. I had no precise knowledge of the greater part of the offices to be created; nor was I informed how the candidates for public favour had directed the train of their applications. It was possible, I reflected, that many of them might...
The letter which I had the honour to address to you on the 2d. instant was written in great haste, and at a time when I felt a good deal indisposed: it was not, therefore, explicit. I now sit down to add a few lines here to the trouble I have already given you; but even here I cannot determine on the particular appointment of my choice.

The numerous applications which no doubt your Excellency has received from candidates for public favour, and the superior abilities which such a range of choice must afford, impress me with great doubts as to the propriety of any application from me.

W. of the Ohio—Collected from good information.” Lists the locations, nations, tribes, and numbers of families of Indians. Ms ( DLC ). Two pages, in Turner’s hand, with three dockets by JM; one docket dates this document 10 Dec, another reads: “Indians, accounts of them from Judge Geo: Turner...
I have taken the liberty to place your Name upon a keg filled with Pekán Nuts. May I beg of you to present them to your Lady—whose acceptance I should feel as an honour conferred on one who subscribes himself, impressed with Sentiments of the highest respect, Sir, Your most obedient and very humble Servant ALS , DLC:GW . This letter is docketed “From Judge Turner 1st Dec. 1795,” but that date...
Allow me to beg your acceptance of a Buffalo Robe adorned with porcupine quills, after the manner of the Missouri Indians. I take the liberty of offering you this, because it may, possibly, be rare in the Atlantic States. Captain Springer will do me the favour of handing it to you, together with a dozen of Beavers’ Tails—for the dressing of which the inclosed is the Canadian Receipt. With...
