Friend Sterling

Mr Mills has paid the note. Luce drew for $17, but draft not honored.

I wish you would look about and ascertain what is being done about the Dis—trict Attorneyship, in a quiet way, and write me by next mail. What became of the recommendation of the Judges? What do you think will be the result? Mr Belden, of course, would like to know, whether there is any chance for him, and the sooner, he understands the mores the better. As a friend of his, you can write me and tell what you learn. He knows you will do all you consistently can for him. Of course this is between Mr Belden, yourself

and myself.

I merely call your attention to Judge Hall, knowing you will not forget to speak to him about that matter.

"All's Well"

Regards to Mrs Morton

Yours Respectfully

John McConihe
