Vincennes 18th. Octr. 1808.
The term for which General Gibson was last appointed expires in the Course of next month— He is far from being a very expert Secretary but he is a very honest man which is much better & I am persuaded that his reappointment would be acceptable to a great majority of the people, it would be entirely so to.
Dear Sir Your Sincerly devoted Hum Servt.
