Endeavering to work for thear subsistance I was taken from my

Power of Congress to comply with your request by sending any
Ships of Force in to the Cheseapeake for the Protection of the Navi-

I have no Doubt your request would have been complied with
most chearfully had it been in the Power of Congress
By the Act enclosed you will see that all the Continental Vessels
of Force were preengaged in a most important Service before your
Letter was received.
