you will apply to Colo Weems for at least ten Men and an
Officer to be so stationed that they may at any Time afford
you Assistance. We believe the Xebec would be at least as
unsafe in Severn or Patapsco as at your yard, therefore would
wish, if she is removed at all, it may be to Patuxent and then
run up where the River is quite narrow. We are afraid the
Stations of the Men of War will be soon, if they are not
already, in such a Situation as to prevent her stirring out at
all, but if you think there's a Probability to get her clear we
wish it to be attempted and leave it to you & Capt Belt. The
Cannon & Stores, we wish you to remove a few Miles into
the Country, and, for that Purpose, hire Carriage and Men; it
will, when known, take off Part of the Motive to pay you a
Visit. We approve your taking the nine Pounders, it was
perfectly right If you can lodge the Stores at different Places,
we think it will be best. We are Sir &ca
Mr Stephen Steward.
