Three page letter from Daniel Webster of Salisbury, New Hampshire to Jacob McGaw in which Webster sets up his letter in a somewhat legal form, using: "Exordium, Facts, Argumentum ad hominem, Preoration or conclusion of the whole matter." The case is concerned with the removal of Mr. Thompson as postmaster and the appointment of Moses Eastman. Goes on more in letter form to say that he has had the measels and does not use his eye with comfort.
