[H. Campbell to Sharpe.]
I shoud not have assurance to address you in this way with-
out the enclosd to introduce me, as tis only the friendship &
intimacy which subsists betwixt my Brother & you, can give
me any title to ask a favour of you I know the purport of his
letter is beging your Countnance & good offices, in favour
of Mr George Wightman a Scotch Gentilman now in Mary-
land, who went to that Country as a prarener & instructor in
the mercantile way, to a sone of mine, who is now cald home
on his friends finding that trade did not turn out in that part
of the world as they expected, his partener Mr Wightman is
still there & will be for some months yet, to wind up there
matters in the best way posible your favourable notice of him,
may be of great service to my boyes little matters in that
Country, & I hope at your friend Glencairns request youll be
so good as give it him & if you woud not think me too im-
portunat or rather impertinat in this my first adress I would
beg an other favour & that is your Countinass to one Capt
Brown a Scotch man too, who Livs & has a family in Mary
Land, he sails often to London & brought home my sone a
few weeks ago, the many Civilitys he showd my young man
dureing his Residence in that Country obliges me to wish I
coud make some return to them, & as I can no otherwise pro-
pose to discharge that debt, but by the good offices, of Govern-
our Sharp if there be occasion for them, I hope he will not
deny them, if you sir finde it not inconvenient to grant me
these requests I shall ever retain a very gratfull sence of your
goodness & am with high regard
your obliged humble
Edinr Janr 29th 1754 Servt H. Campbell
