Summary There is only one vessel that may proceed to New Orleans but her owners are waiting on the decision of Congress relative to the drawback on goods. Several vessels will sail for Havanna soon so if Hodgdon's friend is agreeable, Stevens can arrange for accomodations on one of them. Gordon hopes that Simmons will soon make a remittance of clothing since he pressed for money.
