Honorable Sir,

You will kindly permit me to express to you all the gratitude I feel for the favors you have bestowed upon me. I know that it was by your ministry that the appointement to my present rank was obtained and this places me under the deepest obligations. All my exertions will tend to prove to you that your protection has not been extended to me [unworthily?]

I recommending myself


to your kind remembrance for the future, I remain gratefully

Honorable Sir

Your most obedt servt

[Felix?] Salm
