R[ic]h[ard] M[entor] Johnson to MVB, 2 February 1829

City of Washington

Sir,

I take the liberty of introducing to your acquaintance Mr Robinson of Virginia, who has performed faithful services to the Government in foreign Countries by appointments from the department over which you preside. Mr Robinson has Claims upon his Country which he has not been able to adjust to his satisfaction under your predecessor. It is probable Mr Robinson may present his Claims for some foreign service to Genl. Jackson

In any event I present him to you as a gentleman of great respectability & worth of Character and any services you may render him will not be misplaced or unmeritted

With great respect your

friend & ob Sevt.

Rh. M. Johnson
