It is his Excellency’s desire, that you have an immediate inspection made into the state of the mens arms and accoutrements, belonging to your division; and take effectual measures to have them put into the best order possible. Also to have your men completed to their proper complement of ammunition, strictly injoining the greatest care to avoid all wanton and unnecessary waste. I am Sir  ...

My opinion on the case in question is, that the drawback claimed by Mr. Foster cannot be allowed unless the oath of the master and mate be procured, as prescribed by law, in addition to the...
There is a species of information, which it will be convenient to you to obtain and which will be of important use to the Government: it respects the mode of Navigating of the several States; and of Foreign Nations.

Accordingly, if the President approves my proposition, One will be built at Boston another at...
