March 2d. 1807.
Daniel Brent having understood from Mr. Wagner that he is about to leave the Office of the Secretary of State in a few days, begs leave to solicit Mr. Madison to confer upon him the vacant appointment. He trusts that in this case his conduct will fully entitle him to the approbation and Confidence of the Head of the Department.
