Summary Recommends Captain James Taylor to the President to be appointed as Surveyor for a port to be built near Ocracoke Inlet. Requests that Taylor not be given orders on any service in competition with this appointment. Because the location is mostly uninhabited, the commander of the military post should come under the Officer of the Revenue.
