Early in 1798, The Secretary of War requested me...

Maritime concerns have been with me objects of particular attention from early life, and so far as they are connected with Commerce may be considered as...
The inclosed memoir has received no other publicity than a reading before the Philosophical Society and a few Copies I had Struck off for particular distribution: I shall think myself honoured by your acceptance of one Copy. Permit me also to avail myself of your Influence with the Academy of Arts and Sciences and Humane Society in Boston, to make one acceptable to each of these Institutions,...
