To James Madison from John Walker, 11 May 1801

From John Walker

Shirley 11th. May 1801

My dear Sir

The Bearer Mr. Richard Frazer is desirous of procuring a Clerkship is [sic] some Office of the Federal Government, & being a Stranger to the heads of Departments, has applied to me for an introduction to you. I believe him to be an honest worthy man, & I find he writes a fair hand. Should it be in your power to render service to the Public, by giving emploiment to a worthy man, who has an amiable family depending on his exertions alone, it will, I am sure, be a pleasing task to yourself, at the same time that it will lay a lasting obligation on others, & amongst them on Your friend & hume. Servt.

Jn. Walker1

P. S. Mrs. Walker unites with me in affectionate wishes for yourself & Mrs. Madison.
