GALLATIN TO MADISON.
Philadelphia, 21st July, 1812.
It is said that the consulship of Lisbon is vacant. If so, permit me to recommend with more than common earnestness Pemberton Hutchinson, the son of my former friend, Dr. Hutchinson. The name is dear to every Republican in this State, both in city and country. And I am assured that the son, by his talents and standing, deserves the appointment. In one respect he has an advantage,—that of being already on the spot, connected with one of the most respectable houses in this city.
I had not intended to write until I could give you some account of my success, but, understanding that one of the Mifflins goes by to-day’s stage to Washington to solicit the office, would not let the mail go without writing in favor of Hutchinson, for whose appointment I feel truly anxious.
We have arrived here safe, and intend to proceed to New York as soon as I have done what can be effected here with respect to money.
Mrs. G. presents her best respects to Mrs. Madison.
Do you still want volunteers? I could easily have set the thing going here.
Respectfully, your obedient servant.
