Sir,                                   Williamsburg, 27 Feb 1778
    Mr. Tazewell having resigned his agency for the united states in this commonwealth mr. John Carter wishes to succeed him in the office. I have been acquainted with mr. Carter above thirty years, and much the greater part of that time we have been neighbours to one another. I believe that none exceed him in fidelity diligence and punctuality; and that his attachment to the grand american cause is unquestionable. So that I am persuaded he will give full satisfaction, if congress it shall be pleased to honour him with the appointement. I am,
                        Sir,
                             Your most obedient Servant
                                  G. Wythe
President of Congress
