1. On 24 Jan. 1814 John Mason returned to Armstrong letters from Virginia militia Brig. Gen. Robert B. Taylor regarding the exchange of “American Prisoners held on board the Enemys fleet in the chesapeak” (DNA: RG 107, LRRS, M-265:7). Mason wrote Armstrong again on 3 Feb. 1814, requesting instructions on another proposed exchange (ibid., M-276:7).
