I beg, dear Sir, to introduce to your notice and encouragement the bearer Capt. Delaport. He is a French Gent'm who is recruiting soldiers for the services of this State. He has made some progress in that business here, and thinks there may be some of his countrymen with you who will inlist. His corps is to consist of Frenchmen, a few excepted, who promise to be respectable for order and discipline.
Your civility and furtherance to Capt. De la port in his business will be acknowledged as a favour conferred on him who has the honor to be with great regard,
