26 Octr 83
It gives me infinite satisfaction to transmit you the inclosed Copy of a Resolve of Congress of the 18 Inst. which was put into my hands yesterday.
Perfectly coinciding with the sentiments which Congress have expressed on this occasion I shall feel the greatest pleasure in complying with their Resolve—but I must request you to inform me where the pieces of ordnance are to be found and to what place you would wish to have them sent. I am Dr Sir.
P.S. I have reced your Letter with the names of several Officers who wish to remain in Service on a Peace Establishmt. I shall take pleasure in mentioning them whenever such an Establishmt takes place at present it hangs in suspense.
