From Mathew Carey
Philada July 13. 1813
Your favour of the 19th ult. (which I recd only the 3d inst.) was handed to Mr Clarke, who detained it several days; which prevented its being answered in due course.
For the various valuable suggestions it contains for the improvement of the Naval History, accept my sincere acknowledgments. Mr Clarke promise[s] to pay due attention to them. Should any thing further occur on the subject, have the goodness to communicate it, which shall be regarded as an additional favour conferred upon
