From Francis H. Rozer
Oct 25th. 1801
My Servant George has brought me your name, and informs me you are desirous of hireing him by the year, but the rate I hold him at pr Month is too high, for that period. I omitted inserting in the paper I gave him, the terms by the year. I will take $120 pr Ann: and to return him cloathed in the same manner you receive him. These are the lowest terms I will take for him; and altho’ I am offered $12 pr Month by two boarding houses; I wd prefer his being in a private family. I will also indulge with the privilege of trial for a Month, at the above rate pr. Ann: His chief employment has been that of a waiter, in which capacity, few are equal to him. He has also been accustomed to drive a Carriage, both in my fathers family, & mine—not much used to taking care of horses, or the stable department. If you are ⟨inclined to⟩ take him, I shall be glad to h⟨ear⟩ from you immediately by him; and I will send him up with his cloaths, & such things as he may wish to take up with him. I am Sir Your Most Obt. Servt.
Frs. H. Rozer1
The Character I have given him, in the paper he has with him, is a just one as far as I know him—and I have known the Servt. in my fathers family all my life under a good character.
