Dear Sir
I take the liberty of introducing to you my friend
Dr Staeheli a Swiss of St Gallen, whom I have known these five years, and hold in the highest esteem as a Scholar and a Gentleman.–
He has been some time now in England as Tutor in the family of
General Gubbins, and as Mrs Bohte has given up Bookselling, he thinks there is an opening for a young man in that department of business – He speaks & writes English like an Englishman, and you will be able to judge how far he is likely to be a proper organ for conveying to Englishmen a knowledge of the best productions of Germany. – I have a [2] great affection for Dr Staeheli and have the highest opinion of his principles and prudence, and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to hear of his succeeding with his reputable Countrymen in them countenancing his undertaking – As the success of a Bookseller here will very much depend on his connections in Germany, may I hope that you will assist him as far as you can
I am
Dear Sir
Yours truly
