The Bearer Mr. Joseph Norris intends to visit several parts of Europe. His Family has been very respectable in this Place for several Generations, and he is a young Gentleman of much Merit.
I am convinced that his Worth will induce You to excuse my introducing him to your acquaintance. Your favorable notice of him will be considered as a particular Obligation by Sir, your most obedient & most humble servant,
