[W. H. Jenifer to Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer.]
Dear Sir. This will be delivered you by Mr Wm Marshall,
a young Gent who has served an apprenticeship of three years
with me. His ardor for the service (rather than not go into the
Army) has induced him to accept of an Ensigncy offered by
Col Stone, but as he has applied himself to the Study of Medi-
cine and by which he proposes in future to live, I should be
happy if he could get a surgeon-mate-ship I can assure you
of his being assiduous, and well qualified to fill that depart-
ment: The repeated troubles I am giving you makes me
blush, & am always hopefull that every one will be the last,
but in this instance gratitude for his fidelity and attachment to
me, demanded every assistance in my power, and will always
lay me under an obligation of interesting myself in his wel-
fare. My Nancy joins me in duty,
And am Hond Sir, Your affece nephew
