In full: "The Department has learned from the reports of the Commandant of the U.S. Brig Dolphin and Schooner Grampertz of the judgment and skill displayed by you in your treatment of the sick of those vessels at Porto Praya during their late visit to that place, and of your unremitted kindness and attention on that occasion. I take pleasure in expressing to you the gratification desired by the Department from these testimonials honorable to you as an officer, a physician, and a man."
