From Thomas Mathews

Norfolk 3d November 1801

Dear Sir

I shall offer no excuse for the liberty I take in introducing my friend Lieut. Saunders,1 to your notice and attention. I flatter myself you will find Mr. Saunders an agreeable young Man, and I know He will be acceptable to you, for He is a Man of Honor and integrity.

As I am fixed at the principle mart in our State, it would give me pleasure to render you any services in this quarter. I pray you to be assured, my dear Sir, that I feel myself indebted to the President for calling you into Office, and I trust your health will enable you to discharge the duties agreeable to your wishes. I am with very great respect Dear Sir Your most obet Servt
