I am much obliged by the kind & prompt attention you have been so good as to pay to my letter of the 26th. your testimony and mrs Morris’s in favor of mr Tate would have been decisive with me, but in the interval between that date and my receipt of your answer a proposition came to me of a very capital Maitre d’Hotel, whose character was so well vouched that I thought it imprudent to let it...
Being in want of a Steward or Maitre d’Hotel, a person [by the] name of Tate has been recommended to me, with information that he had [served] you some years in that capacity. as it is highly important to a house that that officer be honest and skilful, I have flattered myself you would be so kind as to give me his character with as much detail as would be interesting to me. I shall consider...
Your favour of the 8th Instt was received the 16th, and the purport of it shall be communicated to the Secretary of War by ⟨the⟩ Mail of tomorrow. In what state the organization of the artillery & Infantry Corps are, under the late acts of Congress, I know not.

I can add nothing, in support of the extract on the other side, that was not contained in a former letter from me to you; on the same subject. But I would thank you for letting me know what answer I shall return to the Commissioners of the Federal city.

The motives which give birth to this letter, proceed as much from private friendship, as they do from a sense of public duty; whatever therefore may be the effect produced by it I presume on your excuse for the trouble it will give you. The letter herewith enclosed from Mr Scott (one of the Commissioners of the Fedl City) was met by me on my way to George Town, with another from Colo. Deakins...

Your steady friend...
