I did myself the honor to inclose you a letter from Major Lenox recommending to the vacant Consulate of Glasgow Mr. George Johnston—I have this moment recieved the inclosed from my very worthy & particular friend Mr. [Arsto] Gracie, in whose recommendations I would place great Reliance. I take it for granted that Mr. Johnston must be a Federalist, for I presume no Democrat would ask a place in Scotland—I think you will be Safe in making this appointment, and am

with Respect Your friend

S. Smith
