No. 49.

[Council to A. Buchanan.]

Sir. We have received two Letters about the Gondolas
you are building, we shall endeavour to procure Anchors and
Cables as soon as possible. Mr Lux has been spoken to about
Cordage and we expect S. Steward has spoke about anchors,
we shall see him in a day or two, and write to you further on
the subject. The Gentlemen you recommend had better come
down and we will converse with them on the subject of their
appointment. The Gondolas had better remain on the Stocks
a short time longer until we can get Cordage for Cables,
Riging &c.
Decr 10th 1776
Mr. Andrew Buchanan
