Pg 1 of 3 Letter to Mercier

My dear Mercier
This is a letter of recommendation for my old friled Marin Lavigne, my poor brother's friend, with the deep hope that you will be favourable to his query. He was together with me and my brother at the Girodet Studio when we were students in painting.
Maybe this circumstance will help my friend to get the favour he is asking for, that is to obtain some work, the more so since he is a very gifted artist, and I would be very much obliged to you if you could assist me in this instance.
A thousand of wishesT. Gudin
