§ From Robert F. Slaughter and William Trimble

May 1813. “It having been intimated that Genl. Lewis Cass either has or is about to resign the office of Marshall for the District of Ohio; we are induced to recommend Doctor John Hamm as a suitable character to succeed him in that office. In Doctor Hamm, we confide as a man of business, integrity and correct political principles, his standing in this State is evinced by his election to the important Station of Elector for President & Vice-President last fall and also elected to the House of Representatives from the County of Muskingum.”

RC (DNA: RG 59, LAR, 1809–17, filed under “Hamm”). 1 p. Signed by Slaughter and Trimble, who also signed the petition from Samuel Herrick and others, May 1813.
