Asa Curtis - Letter of reference, dated 3 June 1833


LS dated 3 June 1833. Letter of reference, signed by James Barron at the Philadelphia Navy Yard,
addressed to the Secretary of the Navy.

Navy Yard Philadelphia
3rd June 1833.
To the Honorable Secretary of the Navy, and
also to any of the officers of the Navy, who maybe
associated in service with Mr Curtis, the bearer
of this letter.
Mr Curtis has served in this yard under
my command for the last two years, during
which period, he has been called on to perform
various duties, in and out of the regular course
of his professional employments, and it
affords me a singular pleasure, now when
Mr Curtis is about to leave us, to testify to the
whole of his good conduct during the time
above alluded to, and I do therefore
confidently recommend him as a worthy
man and a good Officer.
James Barron
