A[ugustus] L[ouis] Roumfort to MVB, 4 July 1838
July 4th 1838
Herewith I have the honor to forward a letter from Charles J. Ingersoll Esqr. I would have the honour of presenting it in person were I not left in command of this post, which of course, precludes the possibility of absenting myself.
I hope Sir, that the fact of Mr Ingersoll’s amanuensis being a very amiable young lady, far from detracting, will rather add weight, in your opinion, to his recommendation.
With sentiments of high consideration
I have the honour to be,
Your obedient Servant
A L Roumfort
