I have the honor to enclose Letters from Genl Macomb, Judge Livingston, and Govr: Tompkins, Together with a Recommendation signed by some of the most respectable Citizens of Newyork. These will I hope be considered sufficient evidence of my fitness for a Consulate. If the Island of Madeira, cannot be obtained, I should be pleased with an appointment either for Nantz, Marseilles, or la Rochelle. With much Respect I am Sir your mo. Obt. Servt.
