for the Senate and as I predicted


to you last winter Col Campbell


is his opponent[.] [T]he result you


know as well as any one[.]


[A]s yet there is no one out for


the other house nor am I able to say who


will be[.] [T]hose spoken of are


Judge Scurry[,] General Darnell[,] Dr


Ford[,] William Holman[,] Dr Rowe &


Judge Cullen[.] Some of my friends


wish me to run. [M]y Compliance


will depend on circumstances


not that I can ever be indifferent


to there [sic] wishes but I am short


of money & tis my duty to


provide for the Comfort of


my family. Yet I am by no means


prepared to say that I shall


not Constitute one of the Candidates[.]

line Should you have one


Spare moment from business[.]


Please make my respects to
