Dear Sir

Mr. R. Hackley has made known to me his wish to receive a consular appointment to some of the French ports- altho a countryman of ours you may be unacquainted with Mr. Hackley; I have long & well known him, & feel a pleasure in recommending him to you as a gentleman who woud, with advantage and credit, fill any such appointment to which the President shall think proper to nominate him. With much Esteem Your friend & Servt

J Dawson
