Hendrick W. Gordon to John Adams

19 Nov. 1813

My Dear Sir, Boston 19th. November 1813,

the President of the United States, having given me the Office of Collector of Direct Taxes & Internal Duties for the County of Middlesex in this Commonwealth; and as you were so obligeing as to honor my letters of recommendation with your name, to which I attribute in a great measure the success of my application, I should do injustice to my feelings, were I to omit to thank you for this distinguished favor: allow me to add an assurance, that I will preserve by my good deeds, the fair Character and confidence which the Constituted Authorities of the Nation, have in those distinguished Citizens who have promoted my views—

I have the honor to be / with the greatest Respect, / Dear Sir your most Obedient / and much Obliged Hum Servant.

H W Gordon
