Summary Mr. Davis has been transferred to the "New York." Mr. Dodge, his mate, has been appointed surgeon of the "Adams" contrary to the wishes of Captain Robinson of the "Adams," who wanted Buchanan as his surgeon. Robinson should be allowed the choice of his own medical officer so Buchanan does not know why Robinson's request was denied.
