To George Washington from William Duke Moore, 14 August 1796

Dukes Row, summerhill Dublin 14 Augst 1796


With scarce a Claim to your Remembrance, except that admiration of your Virtues which I possess in common with half Mankind, and apprehensive that even my Name, tho’ once Honored by your Polite attention may now be forgotten—’tis with infinite reluctance, I take the liberty of introduceing to your Notice the bearer of this Benjn Pemberton, my very dear friend and Relation, who to a fund of General, Knowledge, extensive Reading, & the strictest integrity, has added no despicable Share of Professional—Abilities as a Builder and Architect.

A Strong disposition to see your great World & of making a more Ample provision for a large Family, have induced him to leave, an Hansome Establishment here, to visit you rising Country—I therefore beg leave to Recommend him to your Notice & protection, which I am Convinced he will neither repay with ingratitude or disgrace by inability. I am sir your most obt humle servt

W. D. Moore
