From James Lloyd1
August 14, 1793. “… I have made application to his Excellency the President of the United States for the office of Surveyor of the Port of Baltimore. As the Office is connected with your Department I have thought that this intimation was a mark of respect which your Station as well as your personal character demanded of me.”
