McARTHUR TO WORTHINGTON
Fruit hill Decr. 22nd 1813
I am here yet likely to be until I receive orders to leave home, in some direction. We begin to conclude here, that Hull's trial is again postponed, if ever ordered. Nothing has been heard about it except a newspaper publi- cation.
The legislature it is believed will assume the payment of the land tax under the act of Congress.
I have resigned my office of Major Genl to the Legislature, to prevent confusions and debate on that part of the Governors message, there will be many candidates for tle office Col Brush is one and the most violent Democrat in Chillicothe. I have taken the liberty of mentioning your name, which would succeed without a doubt was it not that you are so much absent from the division.
In haste I am your friend
