From Joseph Dougherty
Washington City Octr 18th–11
I observe in a late paper that Mr G: W: Campbell is elected to the Senate of the U:S: in the place of Mr Whiteside resigned, as he is an active man, and a warm friend to the republican cause, I expect he will be here at the commencement of the session, I believe him to be your friend: however that is best known to your Self
To say any thing of the trouble you have already taken would be useless; you know my disposition well. and all that I have to say is that you have only fulfild my expectation and should the lot fall on me, I will exert myself to cherish that recommendation which you were so kind as to give me.
I hope Mr & Mrs Randolph & the family is well:
our city is verry sickly at present, and many sudden deaths has been leatly. Thank God myself and family is healthy
