By the last post I received a letter from Joseph Allen Esquire by which I am informed that he declines the appointment of Commissioner for the seventh division of Massachusetts.

To prevent delay, I shall write by this mail to Dwight Foster Esquire of Brookfield requesting him to recommend to the President some able, and fit character, who will accept the Office.

I enclose a blank Commission to be filled with the name of such Gentleman as the President shall determine to appoint.

I have the honor to be / with perfect deference / Sir / Your Most Obedt. Servant
