G[orham] A[kin] Worth to MVB, 17 February 1820

I am one more in Charge of the office. But how long I shall retain the station is very doubtful. My Reinstatement I am told was in opposition to the wishes of Mr. Cheves, who is now trying his strength with the new Board with the view of removing Mr Smith. If he succeds I shall probably be again subjected to his Caprices & perhaps again removed. In a pecuniary point of view, the office is important to me. I could therefore wish to retain ^the office^ in peace & safety.
If there is any way of operating upon Mr Cheves, it must be through Mr. Crawford. I can do these gentlemen more hurt than good. If you have any influence with Crawford, you may perhaps render me some service
I know you must have your hands full but let me ask of you to attend to these hints immediately.
I will write you more fully soon
