Dr Sir

My health has been bad the
latter part of past summer & so far this fall & yet have
chills & fever which renders me unable & unfit to hold a court and
as the time for the Decatur court in my Circuit is app-
roaching, I have to request that you will appoint Micaj-
ah Bullock to hold the November 1847 of the Circuit Court
of Decatur County the commission or authority-to Mr.
Bullock I wish you to send to me immediately by mail,
that I may send it to him if I should be unable to hold
the court or not deliver it should I walk to hold (illegible)
I hope I shall be able to perform that duty (illegible)(illegible)
I (illegible) I very much desire that suitors be not disappointed & there
fore request the appointment of Bullock & that you
send his commission to me. The court commences on
this day week on the 15th (illegibile) so that you see there is
no time to be delayed in forwarding the commission. I
intedn to go myself if it is possible & therefore wish its
commision sent as above requested.

Your obt. Servt
