New York February 7. 1824.
I have this morning seen the Captain & have orders to go on board tomorrow, & he says he shall sail in all probability tomorrow, or the day after.
I have found here a young Italian, who speaks very well his native language & the English. His age is about 25 years, & if you or your friends would like such a person to wait on the table &c I can recommend as a young man of ability & integrity.
N.B. The address of the person above is Girom Avighini Broadway No 305.—
