I will try & spend a night with you in a few days
Chambersburg. Oct 13th

Dear Col-

I now care for but one thing - that is your re-election. In that command me in any way & to any extent.

I have written both our members, and asked it of them to go with me for you. They both owe their election to me, and know it. I fear nothing in that quarter. I will write [Dularos?] also. He ought to pay some respect to my [wishes?] in the matter. It was my $300 judiciously expended in that county [saved?] him.

Yours truly

A K McClure
