Jones & Tuttle—all which shall be complyed with according to your direction.
I also have received your letter of the 5th. March enclosing me Dr. Water Hunewill’s appointment, which I shall forward immediately. I found daily a considerable expense arising for the want of a Surgeons Mate here—and gave directions for Dr. Oliver Hubbard at Portland to proceed for this place—I wish if Dr. Hunewill accepts his appointment, to have the liberty to order him for, that place, which I have alredy suggested & which I am inhops will meet your approbation.
