To Joseph Duncan [1]

Dear Sir Nov. 10th. 1835

Understanding that Mr. Levi Davis [2] of Vandalia, is an applicant for the office of Auditor of Public Accounts, I take the liberty to say to you, that his appointment to that office would be entirely satisfactory to me, and, I doubt not, to most others who are the friends of qualification [sic] and---merit--- Your Obt. Servt.
