Letter text, 10 April 1804
Hon Samuel Tyler
G Wythe to the hon' m' Tyler
A commissioner of the Richmond chancerie district court, thinking the allowance to that officer for his services scantie, proposeth that it be increased to five shillings by the hour. This, whatever my opinion might as be, i would not presume to do, without concurrence of my brethren. Thy sentiments on the subject will gratifie me. Farewell.
