MVB to Smith Thompson, 14 December 1818

DrSir, 

Our friend Mr. Watson desires some appointment for his Nephew Capt. Watson in your department. I have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with Capt Watson but am persuaded that Mr. Watson's recommendation will receive full credit with you according to its import. Knowing that it will be highly acceptable to you to be of service to Mr Watson, any further solicitations on my part would be superfluous.

Yours cordially 

M.V.Buren
