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

Four Clarinets

Two bassoons

Two French horns

A Cymball

A Double Drum—
