§ From Nathaniel Massie
18 March 1805, Chillicothe. “Having been informed that the Marshall for the district of Ohio has resigned Mr. Michael Baldwin the late attorney for the district has express [sic] a wish to fill that office if the President should think proper to confer on him that office I am persuaded that in the execution of the duties attached to it that Mr. Baldwin will give general satisfaction.”
