Th:J. to mr Gallatin
I return you Price’s letter respecting Pilch’s case, which we must recollect should the judge recommend him for pardon.
For a successor to Stanford would it not be better to write to judge Polke and Dr. Cropper who recommended Standford and can be relied on to recommend a republican. mr Goldsborough would probably recommend Smith, the Scotch tory candidate of the former occasion, or some other federalist. there is time enough yet to get an answer before Congress rises. I have this day nominated Beverley Daniel Marshal for N.C. and yesterday Van Pradelles Register at N.O. Affectte. salutns.
