The Bearer, Mr. Beyerlé, goes to America with Views of settling himself in that Country. His Father is a man of Substance, and will assist him with what may be sufficient to establish him, if there may be a Prospect of his doing well. As a Stranger your Counsels may be of Use to him, which I therefore request you would afford him. He is recommended to me by very respectable Persons, and I shall aknowledge the Civilities you may show him. With great Esteem, I have the Honour to be, Sir, &c.
