To Thomas Jefferson from William Poole, 8 October 1804

Bltime Mills 10 Mo. 8. 1804.

Respected Friend,

James Brobson, a native and respectable citizen of this Town, desirous of obtaining the Office of Collector of the Port of Wilmington, should a removal of the present officer take place—We (at his request) express our opinion, that his mercantile habits—steady attention to business, and reputable connections, would prove a guaranty for his performance of the duties thereof with fidelity.—

With much respect &ce

Wm Poole
