    Recommendation of Elijah Sparks for Judge (1813)
    “We the undersigned Citizens of Dearbourn* county Indiana Territory. Represent to your Excellency the many hardships that we as well a Others Citizens of said Territory labour under, by reason of the long vacancys in the Judiciary system under the General Court establishment thereof. The late Judge Vanderburgh has for a considerable time been deceased, and no one as yet acting in his place Judge Taylor has for months been in the Army, and as we are informed there expects to remain during the present War. The consequence is, that system is rendered useless in the Territory to the prejudice of Sutors; and Thro our Delegate we make our remonstrance to you, and pray, that the bench of said Court be again filled, and should it become necessary to make a new appointment to accomplish our desires, we beg leave to recommend to your Notice & attention Elijah Sparks Esquire, one of our County men, as a man well qualified, to fill said vacancy.
