From J. J. Smith to Lloyd C. Stark

Description: 

Letter from J. J. Smith to Governor Lloyd C. Stark. Smith warns that if a man named H. V. Sewell has recently written to pledge support for Judge James Douglas, Stark should be suspicious as Smith knows that Sewell has recently written to Pendergast pledging loyalty to his side. Smith writes that Sewell has an "inclination and practice of trying to ride two horses at the same time going in opposite directions." Smith also offers Stark advice and information in the future, "confidentally or publicly."
