James Madison Papers

To James Madison from DeWitt Clinton, 7 January 1816

New York Jany. 1816

We the subcribers recommend Monsieur Francis J. Berier of the City of New-York to the Professorship of the French language in One of the additional Military Academies contemplated to be established. Mr. Berier is a native of France. He has been at the Head of the Economical School in the City of New York, for some Years past. From his acquaintance with the language of the United States, we believe him to be well qualified for the Professorship to which we recommend him.
