James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Benjamin Tasker Dulany, November 1807

November 1807

Dear Sir,

Mr. Moss who acted under Mr. Daniel Brent as deputy Marshal for the County of Alexandria, I can say with truth and impartiality, has behaved like an honest, and well disposed man as an Officer, (his manners mild and firm). I think Mr. Moss well qualified as a Marshal. He is a good Accomptant, and very industrious, and acts with independence like a true American. I respectfully ask your friendship in favor of this Man, as we are told their are other applicants for this Office. With friendly & respectful Compliments to your good Lady, I am with Esteem and respect Your Obedt Servt.

Bn. Dulany
