« Such a compilation executed with the care and industry which characterize this work, and illustrated by the introduction and appendices, cannot but prove invaluable to the Executive and Legislative Departments, as furnishing them in a well arranged form with the information so essential to the correct discharge of a large amount of the business upon which they are called to act.

Under the due influence of the subjoined recommendation alluded to in the foregoing Testimonials, the Senior Editor received, on the day of its presentation to the President, an appointment in the Pension office, in very flattering terms from the Secretary of the Interior, in March, 1851, with the view to his devoting his evening hours to the prosecution of the compilations mentioned; of which this work was the first result, together with a "SYNOPSIS OF THE ORGANIZATION AND PRACTICAL OPERATIONS OF THE PENSION OFFICE"—which will be presented to the public on a future occasion, in connection with a like SYNOPSIS of the other Bureaux of the Department of the Interior.
WASHINGTON, January, 1851. The undersigned would respectfully recommend Dr. Mayo to the favorable consideretion of the President and the members of his Cabinet, for an appointment in some one of the Executive Departments, suitable to his well known ability and fitness for any clerical duty under the Government. Independent of bis well tested capacity and fitness for such appointment, we deem the collateral object he has in hand, of extending the plan of bis work on the Treasury to the other Departments, to which he would be enabled to devote his evening hours, as eminently worthy of additional consideration in conferring on him the appointment requested.
