Philadelphia, Septemr. 30th. 1808
Doctor Macauley, who will hand you this, informs me it is his intention to solicit an appointment in the line of the Army, and has requested of me a letter of introduction to you.
I have been personally and intimately acquainted with Dr. Macauley for two years past. He possesses an amiable disposition, good judgement, is generally well inform’d and truly a republican. He has devoted much of his leisure time to the Study of Military tacticks, and would in my opinion make an attentive active & useful Officer. I am confident I have not spoken more favorably of him than he merits.
I have the honor to be, Sir, with great respect & esteem, yr mo. Obedt. Sevt.
