Hon. Nathan Sargent was for many years a resident of Alabama Altho. he was born and raised in Vermont.
He has very many friends in my State, all of whom would regret to see him removed from his present position.
I have been through[?] a good deal in contact with Mr. Sargent of late, and regard him as a most capable, honest, efficient officer. I do not believe that a change in office would benefit the public service. His years of experience, together with his untiring industry & close application to his business gives him an advantage that none others possess.
