This letter concerns two vacancies in the office of Associate Judge. Hand is writing to Finley urging him to use his influence in keeping a Baptist and a Presbyterian from getting the offices. Instead of these men, he wants John Bryan and Salmon Reckard, who are true Methodists and true Whigs. "But," said Hand to Finley, "You must log-roll at a very early period if anything is?? accomplished." If Mr. Bryan is elected, it will exert a favorable influence on the Methodists in that territory for seven?? years to come. Abstract Number - 305
