Washington Febry. 25th. 1809.
I take the liberty of submitting to your consideration the enclosed letter. It is from a young Gentleman of the City of New York, of regular mercantile education, of genteel manners, good character, & most respectable connexions. Should any prior arrangement prevent you from complying with his wishes, as they relate to an appointment in your family, I must beg leave to recommend him to you as a person well qualified to execute the duties of a Consul or Commercial Agent. With great respect I remain Sir Your humble Sert.
Daniel C. Verplanck
