Dear Sir

The bearer Doctor Le Hicks came here recommended to me by the Parish Judge of the parish of Iberville as a physician of talents who wished to establish himself in this parish, or on your side of the Sabine. Judge Dutton says he has known him for two years past, one of which he practiced in his family "with more than common success, and that as a Citizen he gained the friendship and Esteem of all who knew him " He states also that he was aboard the Steam boat Tennessee when she sunk, and lost considerable property, and concludes by observing that he thinks him deserving of the esteem and assistance of all persons who consider merit and talents essential to the forming a physician.—

This is all I Know of this Gentleman

My Respects to your family
