State of Kentucky
Lexington March 23rd 1808
The resignation of Mr George M Bibb attorney of the united states court, for the district of Kentucky; has caused that office to be vacant. Mr William T Barry attorney at law, wishes to be considered as a candidate for that vacancy; he is an attorney of some emence at the barr and it is said he is assiduous and vigilant in his profession. Mr Barry is well known to the most of the members from this State in Congress, and I doubt not but they will agree with me in the Opinion of his fitness to discharge the duties of that office
I have the Honor Sir to be respectfully your Hble Servt
