Summary A list of articles wanted for the Dey and Ministry with the commission for timber on the annuity, i.e., to launch and pave the way for said timber to turn out at Algiers to the advantage of the United States. All the listed articles should be directed to O'Brien at Algiers and he warns that these articles should be particularly attended to or he shall have no friends to aid himin the business. Since the timber cannot be transported on one vessel, the listed articles should be divided between the vessels carrying the timber.
