Aleck will deliver you a box addressed to Mr. Governeur, New York. It contains books for the "Naval Institute" at that place. The bulk being too great for the mail, I must ask the favor of you to forward the article by the first safe water opportunity, apprizing Mr. Governeur, by a line thro’ the mail, that you have done so and that the freight wch. you will be good eno’ to advance for me, has been paid.
