Sir, it being proposed to appoint a law agent to the Company of undertakers of the Grand Canal, I beg leave to submit to your consideration my pretensions to that employment. In the year 1765 I was directed to compleat the purchases of the ground intended for the Canal, ... if you should think that I have conducted myself with propriety, ... I request your suffrage to continue me in an office, the duty of which I shall endeavour to discharge to the utmost of my abilities. ...
