This Letter will be presented to your Excellency by Captn John Barry commander of the Alliance Frigate—He has represented to me the immediate necessity of manning his Ship for a service upon which He is orderd—& I should have been happy to have had it in my power to serve him effectually. As it is not, He proceeds to your Excellency, & I have no doubt, that, when He opens to you the nature of the service on which He is order’d your Excellency will do every thing possible to dispatch Him.I am with the highest respect Your Excellency’s most obedient servant
