Bltime Mills 10 Mo. 8. 1804.
James Brobson, a native and respectable citizen of this Town, desirous of obtaining the Office of Collector of the Port of Wilmington, should a removal of the present officer take place—We (at his request) express our opinion, that his mercantile habits—steady attention to business, and reputable connections, would prove a guaranty for his performance of the duties thereof with fidelity.—
With much respect &ce
