Quincy July 2. 1799
Dr Daniel Parker of Norton introduced to me by General Cobb will have the Honour to deliver you this Letter. The Case of his Son is a very unfortunate one, and I beg Leave to introduce him to your kind offices. If the young Gentleman can be discharged with Propriety I am desirous it Should be done or if he has dispositions and qualifications for any thing better than the station of a common Soldier, I wish he might have it.
I am Sir with much respect / your most obedient Servant
