    Dr Sir

    As you are now Elected to the Presidency, & are probably out of a job at present, as no man will think
    of offering you a job for fear you would be above work now, and as I a nice little job of
    about 500 cords of wood to chop and a lot of rails to make. So I thought I would write you, and
    See if we could not come to terms and exchange work, on fair terms if You will help me with my
    job, (which we can easily do against the first of March next) after that your term will commence and you will want a good deal of help more then any President before you has needed for in
    addition to the ordinary work you will a need a good many hands to undo what old Jemmy has

    done wrong, So if you see proper you may come as soon Suits your convenience and I will
    help you at any time you may need my Services, but perhaps You would like to know what I can
    Do, I can handle the axe, the maul, make a whiskey barrel, build a neat and good wall, out of
    brick or Stone, do Something at most any thing else from cutting pork Down to Pettifoging.
    At present I am post Master under J. Buckanon and there are two good reasons for it first, because
    there is no Democrat in town that has both the room and qualifications Suitable
    Secondly because I Electioneered harder against J. Buckanon then any man in this town I expect,
    judging from Bucks Message that you will have the Secession Difficulties to Settle, consequently,
    it is the Duty of every American to Study the question in all its bearings, first give the South all its
    legal and constitutional priveleges and protect all their Municipal rights and the Same to the
    Northe
    Secondly, as the Missouri Compromise has been repealed as unconstitutional if it was unconstitutional
    Six Years ago it is so yet, therefore I Say no compromise but equal and exact
    justice all, very respectfully yours
    George Sprecher
    Post Master at Arcanum
    Dark Co
    Ohio
