Requests a letter of introduction to Governor Claiborne “in favor of Mr Hugh Pollock of this place who is about to settle at New Orleans.” “Mr Pollock has been a Merchant of much respectability here for some years, he married the only Daughter of Mr Joseph Anthony late of Philada. and from a long acquaintance with him I have no hesitation in saying he is quite the plain Correct Gentleman.”1
