Description
Acknowledges appointment to the office of attorney general; the office has received dignity from the person who lately filled it, but in his present situation he must decline it; suggests that some person of large property might be glad to show his disinterestedness by serving in the office gratis, but the pittance at present attached to it would deprive him of that pleasure, without being an adequate reward.
