Payneville, Ala. Nov. 30, 1860 To His Excellency, Andrew B. Moore, Governor of Alabama Dear Sir: Our venerable and highly esteemed Probate Judge, for Lowndes County, Hon. E. [?] Cook, departed this life at 1 o'clock this morning and the office which he has so long filled with much ability, has thus become vacant. I therefore drop you a line to inform you that I am an applicant to fill the unexpired term for which he was elected. And should I receive the appointment, promise to discharge the duties of the office [underlined: faithfully,] and to the best of my ability. I need the office, and believe that my appointment will be satisfactory to the people of the County, and all others who may be interested in the business of the Court. As to my capacity etc, I beg leave to refer you to Gen. S. P. Nessmith, of this place, John A. Elmore, Thomas J. Judge, and Thomas H. Watts, of Montgomery. Hoping that this application will meet with your favorable consideration. I remain Yours Respectfully William [Rarry ?]
