Dear Sir,

I understand it is necessary to make an appointment of Marshall for the state of North Carolina I know of no person who more merits the appointment than John Lockhart, He has acted in the capacities of deputy Marshall sheriff and collector of arrearage due the state in all of which he has discharged the duties with promptitude and exactness and to the general satisfaction, I therefore take the liberty of recommending of him to your notice as a proper person for the appointment

I am with sentiments of respect Your Most obedient Servant

Willis Alston
