Jackson Jany 20th 1876
A few days ago I met Mr Rothschild (whom you appointed city Judge) at Vicksburg — His appointment meets the approval of all the good and fair-minded people of the city — He is liberal, worthy, competent and honest — He is one of the most prominent Jews of the city — He is liked by the whites and commands the confidence and respect of the colored people — An appointment more creditable to yourself or acceptable to the people could not have been made The Mayor, Dr. O’Leary will cheerfully give way so soon as Mr Rothschilds appointment is, confirmed by the Senate. — He requested me to say to you, that you would confer a great favor by sending his appointment to the Senate for its action, at your earliest convenience—
From your friend and Obt Sert
