Saco March 11th. 1815

We your Petitioners humbly represent, that in our opinion a Gentleman of respectability, Talents & Activity is much wanting as Consul at Liverpool in Great Britain.

Thomas R Hazard formerly of New York now resident at Liverpool we beg leave to recommend, he is held in high estimation by all the Americans who formerly traded at Liverpool, & from our Knowledge of that Gentleman high Character & Talents we are certain he would honor the appointment we therefore solicit the appointment of that Gentleman as Consul at Liverpool Great Britain & as in duty bound will ever pray,
