Middletown Ct. 8 August 1807
The death of Mr. Imlay, late commissioner of loans within this State, having created a vacancy in that office, I take the liberty of naming Mr Jonathan Bull of Hartford as a person perfectly qualified for the office. Mr Bull, if I mistake not, was early recommended to you as a successor to Mr Imlay whenever one should be appointed. He is a man of irreproachable character, and I may venture to say that his appointment would be highly gratifying to the friends of the government, here.
I pay you, Sir, the homage of my perfect respect.
