George Mason to Thomas Jefferson (February 16, 1792)

Virginia Gunston-Hall February 16th. 1792
DEAR SIR
The Bearer, Mr. Isaac McPherson, a Merchant of Alexandria, has informed me, that he has something of Moment to communicate to you (with the Particulars whereof I am unacquainted) and being a Stranger to you, has requested, from me, a Letter of Introduction.
Mr. McPherson has resided some years in Alexandria, has carryed on extensive business there; and as far as I have heard or understood, has always supported a fair character, and been esteemed a Man of Integrity and good Sense; so that, altho I have not had Opportunitys of a very intimate personal Acquaintance with him, I shou'd not scruple to place Confidence in him; of which I really believe him worthy.
I have the Honour to be, with the greatest Esteem and Regard, dear Sir, Your most obdt. Sert.
G MASON
