Boston March 1818
At the Request of General Welles I write this Letter to introduce Mr. Binon the Artist we yesterday mentioned in the Committee’s Address & whose Services you so kindly condescended to encourage, for the Public Purpose of gratifying the Citizens of this Town, & Posterity.
From the Specimen of his Abilities as an Artist of which We have a satisfying Proof in a Bust of General Dearbon, we confide in a successful Obtainment of a much desired Purpose, not lessened by the interesting Interview which took Place Yesterday at Quincy.
most respectfully Yours
MHi: Adams Papers.
