Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Joel Barlow, 18 March 1806

Washington. 18 March 1806—

Dear Sir

If you can find time to read over the enclosed letter from Mr. Erving you will see expressed in a more striking manner than I could do it his reasons for desiring some military brevet rank. I can of course say nothing on the propriety or impropriety of your granting his request.

With great respect your obet. sert.

Joel Barlow
