Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Stone, 19 June 1807

Windsor 19th. June 1807.

Dear Sir,

Enclosed I take the liberty to lay before You two Letters which an absence of some weeks from home has prevented me receiving till this day. Mr Hawks the Writer of one is the Collector at Newbern And Mr Gaston is a distinguished Counsellor of the same place. I have not the pleasure. of a personal acquaintance with Mr Pasteur but entertain no doubt from the candor and intelligence of the Gentlemen whose Letters are enclosed that if the office of Marshall remains to be filled and he should be selected to fill it he will honorably and faithfully discharge the duties of it.

I have the honor to be With the Highest Respect & Consideration Your Humble Servant

David Stone
