Summary Hodgdon asks Elliot to send four 24 pound guns to Lemuel Weeks in Portland. Mr. Weeks has a brig currently at Providence bound for Portland which can carry the guns, so Elliot only needs to move the guns from their present location to the ship. If Week's ship has already sailed, Elliot should find another vessel bound for Portland to convey the guns.
