Dr Sir

By the Death of Mr. Goetchus, and the Resignation of Mr. Murray, the Consulate at Genoa, and at Glasgow Are become Vacant. An Appointment to fill Either, would Confer A favour to be Remembered with Gratitude, and Afford Relief to A Family Who are great sufferers in the Cause of freedom and firmly Attatched to Your Administration. Should It be thought necessary to forward Recommendations from this State I flatter myself I Can procure the most Satisfactory. I Remain with the Highest Consideration
