To William Eustis
Washington Novr. 1. 1813
Will you permit me to inclose for your consideration, a commission which may be recommended by the advantage of local conveniency?1 It will not be put on record untill your decision shall warrant, which it will be agreeable to receive as soon as it may be reasonably expected. Accept my best respects & regards
