Presuming it may be satisfactory to you; I do myself the honor to inform you of the forwardness and present State of the Algrine Frigate. Every exertion on my part has been made to get her ready in good season—She is now every way Compleate; with Ballast and water on board ready to bind sails, and receive her Crew & Stores. But must unavoidably be delay’d on acct. of Cannon; of which I have not any information. Every thing else is furnishd; or Purchased here.—
