To James Madison from Alexander J. Dallas, 26 February 1815

From Alexander J. Dallas

26 Feb. 1815

Mr. Dallas respectfully states to the President, that Mr. John T. Irving, a brother of the member of Congress, has been strongly recommended to succeed Mr. Sanford, in the office of District Attorney. His introduction to Mr. D. is from Judge VanNess, and Genr. VanNess. His legal talents are highly rated; but there are persons now here, who could put that point beyond doubt.

RC (DNA: RG 59, LAR, 1809–17, filed under “Irving”).
