Dear Sir,

This letter will, probably, be delivered to you by Mr Fitzhugh—third son to Colo. Fitzhugh of Maryland—who is desirous of obtaining an appointment in Baylors Dragoons.

Mr Fitzhugh is a stranger to me, but is spoken of as a promising young man, just from his Studies—Such characters is an acquisition to any Corps—I shall be obliged to you for introducing him to my namesake as a fit person to receive a Commission in the Regiment he commands if there is a vacancy in it—and for any civilities you may shew him. With much truth and Sincere Affection I am—Dr Sir Your Obedt Servt

Go: Washington
