§ From Clement Biddle
6 June 1811, Philadelphia. “I find that Mr. Carrington is returned from Canton & as he may not probably go back a Vacancy in the Consulship may take place.” Requests the place for his son, George W. Biddle, who has resided there for several years and is “much respected and esteemed particularly by the Gentlemen of the British factory.” Has written to Monroe on this subject.
