Letter of recommendation, in part: "Young Mr. Gibson, who applies for a warrant as a midshipman, will probably be the bearer of this letter. He is a young gentleman with whom I am not personally acquainted, but who maintains a very fair reputation, of which you will, I doubt not, receive testimonials from those who know him." In very good condition. Written in his own hand while serving as chief justice, this letter demonstrates Marshall's influence in all types of governmental affairs.
