To James Madison from William Jones, 14 September 1813

From William Jones

Navy Department Sept’ 14. 1813

Dear Sir

Accept my congratulations and the glorious little victory of the Enterprize over the Boxer. It is in as high style and [sic] any that has preceded it and serves to enliven the national feeling during a period of suspense and anxiety. Gen Bloomfield has recieved a private letter from Col Brearley with a postscript of the 7th at Fort George.

Our fleet was out on the Lake in pursuit of the Enemy with a fair wind both in sight standing up the Lake and every prospect of meeting; Very Sincerely & respectfully Your Obdt Servt

W Jones

RC (DNA: RG 59, ML).
