Mr. Moss who acted under Mr. Daniel Brent as deputy Marshal for the County of Alexandria, I can say with truth and impartiality, has behaved like an honest, and well disposed man as an Officer, (his manners mild and firm). I think Mr. Moss well qualified as a Marshal. He is a good Accomptant, and very industrious, and acts with independence like a true American. I respectfully ask your friendship in favor of this Man, as we are told their are other applicants for this Office. With friendly & respectful Compliments to your good Lady, I am with Esteem and respect Your Obedt Servt.
