Dr. Sir,

The small salary of 800$. which I receive as Judge here does not support my Family: Many offices in the Land Business here (and not incompatible with my present Office, are within the Gift of the President). Will you use your influence to assist me to one of them. I am with high respect your obt. Servt.

Tho. T. Davis
