Gov. Trousdale

Dear Sir
A large number of the bar of this place
having recommended the appointment of
the Hon. W R. Harris to fill the vacancy
occasioned by the death of Judge [Farley?],
and as there may be other applicants,
I have taken it upon my self, to con -
- sult, with the Party, and community,
about the appointment, and find that
the most substatial of them are very
anxious that, you should give the
appointment to Judge, Harris. and
I am fully satisfied, that it would be
the best, among us that applicants [base?]
is strictly democratic and has [pemane -
- ntly], located in our City.

I think you will give your self
no uneasiness about your success
for the vote for you will be[ illegible ]
increased, West of the Tennessee; the work
goes bravely on here abouts.

Your Friend Truly and obd
Servant Jno D Goodall
