Dear Sir,

I understand that Mr. Cleon Moore late Register of Wills in this place has resigned his office, and that no appointment has yet been made to fill up the vacancy.

I have been acquainted with Mr. Alexander Moore from his Infancy and I take a pleasure in stating that he is a young Gentleman of fair character, much esteemed in this place, and perfectly qualified to perform the duties of the office of Register of Wills. I am with great respect your Obt. Sert.

Tho. Swann
