Navy Department April 26th: 1815
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note, with the proceedings of the Court Martial on Dr: Roberts.
I have this day issued an order to convene a new Court to try him upon the former charges and such additional ones, as may be exhibited against him, which according to Capt. Sinclairs letter will tend to produce a different result. I have the honor to be with great respect Your Obedient Servant
