The enclosed just received I submit to you—I have pleasure in informing you that the Carpenters sent from our Navy Yard have returned and that they have completed all the Carpenters work necessary for the repair of the Chesapeake—
From the enclosed printed & manuscript extract it would seem that the Schooner had been sent for the Leopard & that the Leopard has gone to Halifax—
Affy. & Respy.
