Dear Genl.

Capt. Joel Davis of this City has expressed to me his willingness to accept a Captains Commission in the Eventual Army—He is in my opinion well qualifyed for such a command & in case of emergency I am persuaded will be found among the most active & zealous defenders of his Country & its government—

I am Sir with great Respect & Esteem your Most Hubl Sert,

James Watson

Majr Genl Hamilton
