Novr. 3d. 1808 Williamsburg
Permit me to add my Testimony to that of others, of much more Consequence than mine, of the Merits of Dr. Upshaw, who offers his Services as a Hospital Surgeon. To the valuable medical requisitions, which he made during a considerable Residence in France, he unites a general Stock of Information, a quickness of Conception, & an Integrity, which afford the Assurance of his proving himself to be highly worthy of the Post, which he solicits. He has, moreover, always discovered the good Sense, & the real Patriotism, not only to approve, but to be the warm & zealous Friend of the present Administration
With the highest Respect & Esteem, I am Dr Sir—Yr. Friend & Sevt.
