Raleigh, [N.C.], August 19th, 1864

My Dear Sir,

I frequently ask your advice and then are governed by my own judgment. I have been advised by an influential friend to run before the next Genl. Assembly for Secty. Of State. It is the opinion of many that I can easily defeat the present Secty. Col. Russ. [1]. He has made himself obnoxious to many of the [?] men, but whether he can be beaten or not remains to be seen. The office is a prominent one and is on that account desirable. I have many good friends in the Assembly and think I can secure the Govís influence. I would like your views on the subject. I am very loth to scramble for office and this is the most serious objection to offering.

Your statement of Treasy. Acct. is correct.

Yours Truly,
P.A. [?]

I do not wish the matter spoken of to any one.

Light age toning and wear. Interesting war date North Carolina political letter.

*** I can not make out the last name of the letter writer. Maybe someone with more experience in North Carolina history will recognize it.

[1] This letter is regarding John P.H. Russ, Secretary of State of North Carolina. Russ served in this position in the cabinet of Governor Zebulon B. Vance, from 1864-1865.
