Charlottsville April 15th. 1805.
Inclosed you find a letter written by Joseph Woodson now resident at Manchester. My acquaintance with this young Man will not justify my saying any thing for or against him—Yet I feel it a duty owed to all to promote so far as I can the hapiness of my fellow man. This duty otherwise than letting Known the wish he expresses for serving his Country & himself could not be discharged
I am Sir Most Respectfully yr Ob Servant
T M Woodson
