Morrisania May 22d 1815
Respect and admiration for your Talents and Virtues have attended me through life I now take the Liberty of recommending, as Consul at Gibraltar, Mr. Samuel Larned of Providence Rhode Island. He is a Member of a most respectable family I know them personally. His age, nearly thirty, his mind highly honorable, and his talents very considerable.
With sentiments of perfect esteem I subscribe myself your humble Servant
