Author Name Oliver Wolcott, Jr. (primary) Location: Treasury Department
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary)
Summary Wolcott considers the prospect of obtaining the six pounders from Mr. Hughes to be remote so the question arises as to whether the short six pounders on hand can be mounted with the long nine pounders that Hughes has cast. If this is the case, then it must be determined if a suitable and uniform assortment of nine pounders can be obtained. Mr. Francis has made arrangements for the colors to be made for the frigate.
