Letter to Major James Nelson Barker [manuscript], 1829 October 5.

Noah inquires if Barker has an opening in Philadelphia for a Jackson man, refers to an unpopular project of Samuel Delucenna Ingham concerning the "poor inspectors," and expresses satisfaction that Barker's Philadelphia work is going well. A draft reply on the verso says there are no positions available, mentions the state election and the many Jackson candidates.
