To James Madison from John Francis Mercer, 20 June 1801 (Abstract)

§ From John Francis Mercer

20 June 1801, West River, Maryland. Recommends Anne Arundel County resident John Groves for clerkship. “This business is peculiarly disagreable to me … but when called on by any Citizen of the County I live in, I deem it in some measure a duty, to give them every advantage in my power that I think they merit.”
