From Jonathan Dayton, 22 June 1799

Elizth. Town June 22nd. 1799

Dear General,

Acquainted with Capt. Joel Davis of your State, I take the liberty of recommending him to you for the command of a compy. in the eventual army. He is active, temperate and, I believe, in every respect well qualified for that charge and station. His zeal in support of our Government & it’s Administration knows no bounds and furnishes a sure ground of reliance upon him in any critical emergency.

With the highest esteem & respect I am Dr Sir your most obedt.

Jona: Dayton
