Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Benjamin Stoddert, 30 October 1799

To Benjamin Stoddert, 30 October 1799

NY. Oc 30. 99


I enclose to you a letter in recommendation of Dr. Adolph Lent.

It has the signature of Mr. Tillary a respectable physician of this city, and a gentleman in whom I can place full confidence. Doctor Lent has shewn me the recommendations from other physicians of respectability, and I have no doubt from these recommendations that he is fully deserving of the place which it is his wish to obtain.

With great respect

Secretary of the Navy
