His Excellency

Edward Whitney [illegible] Esqr. is an applicant for Adgt. of one of the new Regiments He was in my office for two years, & one of the best & most efficient Clerks I ever had. He was thorough [illegible] [three?] months Service in [illegible] Walliers Regiment I can say I know of no young man of higher character, & of better business capacity, & if you can consistently give him the appointment, I am sure he will do justice to the office
