To Oliver Wolcott, Junior
[New York, September 8, 1797]
My Dr. Sir
I have received the inclosed letter1 which I send to you with only this remark that I have a good opinion of the writer. I know that the pretensions of the person recommended will be weighed in an equal scale & will have all the attention to which they are intitled.
