Mobile March 31, 1860.
To His Excellency
Gov. A. B. Moore
Dear Sir -
We are informed that John A.
Hitchcock Esq. at present Judge of Probate, for this County
intends shortly to resign that position.
We learn also that Danl. Chandler Esq
of this Bar will put the appointment at your hands. We
beg to add our cordial recommendation in his favor to that
of other gentlemen who may bespeak your favorable regard of
his claims. No one would portend to doubt Mr Chandler's
competing for the office. His long and large experience at the
Bar, has well fitted him to administer the law from the
Bench of that Court, for believe our Community would be
gratified at seeing him in that office; & that no other
appointment would be more satisfactory to the profession & the
public. Our professional connection with the business of
this County, justifies us , we think, in the expression of
these sentiments.
If it be proper to speak of personal wishes, we may
say our wishes and judgment would be satisfied with
such exercise of the appointing power.
We understand that the situation of his personal
affairs renders the office desirable to Mr Chandler, at
