acknowledge the receipt of your
letter of the 4th Inst & to state
that from a wish to bring
forward your Son, his Lordship
has added Sir Alexn [Alexander?]

on the North American Station
which, though the List is at present
in a crowded state, his Lordship
trusts will eventually ensure
Mr. Dawson's Promotion.
The favorable testimony borne
by Captain Wise to your Sons'
character while serving with
him in the Spartan has been
placed upon record.
I have the honor to be, Sir
Your most obed [obedient?] & hble [humble?] Servant
