My Dear Sir,
Last fall, I believe that you took a warm interest in my election.
I therefore now write to you-as to what has been, & may be done this fall.
Since my return home, & in fact before, I have been invited by friends to have my name put in nomination for the Senate. The advice of my friends in the other parts of the State, & my own inclinations would lead me to return to the Assembly. In case of such return, with a democratic assembly, I should in all probability' be again the Speaker.
In this position, I can well aid my party, my friends & myself. If you concur with me, I shall be happy to have your aid to secure my hearty nomination & election. Talk with our folks, & ascertain the sentiment, & write to mc.
Don't mention, that I have written to you
WM. H. LUDLOW
Win. S. Mount Esq.
P. S. As it has been customary to send the old member to the fall convention at Syracuse, I shall be happy to be sent, as I intend being present in Syracuse at that time.
