To Charles Cotesworth Pinckney
NY. Nor. 18th. 99
Pursuant to a conversation which I had with you while in this city I have concluded to offer to Lt. Izzard the place of Aid de camp in my family.1 I have mentioned to Mr. Izzard that you will dispense with the form of an application to you as Commanding General of the district.
