Sir. We have yours of 8th & for your satisfaction inclose
you some copies of Resolves relative to the naval Department.
Much may depend upon your getting away soon, and we are
glad to find that you will be ready before Christmas. The
Bounty given we hope will be an inducement to your men,

We shall be glad to see you as you propose, when we can
converse farther on Matters in general.
