To John Jay
New York, December 18, 1798. “You may remember that I have heretofore recommended to you Mr. 1 Inglis,2 who studied the law with me, for the Office of Notary. He entertains an idea that a vacancy for such an appointment now exists, and has reminded me of my promise to be useful to him—I with pleasure reiterate my recommendation.…”
