John R[euben] Drake to R[eturn] J[onathan] Meigs Jr., 15 April 1820


From the various representations which have been made to me in regard to malpractices of the Postmaster at norwich I must cordially unite with Mr. Van Buren in recommending his removal and the appointment of Lot Clark

Very Respectfully yours

John R. Drake
