To Henry W. Ludlow [26 November 1799]
November 26, 1799
It is my intention that there shall be ten common Drums to a Regiment—
There will then remain for the Band the two Chief Musicians and ten other Musicians—
Each of the Chief Musicians may have an Octave flute or a hautboy—and there should be besides
Two French horns
A Double Drum—
