Letter to Lord Stirling


My LORD: We are favoured with your letter of yesterday. We have examined the bearer, and cannot discover the bore of the arms of your troops, or the size of the cartridges that would be useful for them. We are informed that your troops are at present supplied with six rounds each.

If, sir, you will direct a cartridge of the size necessary for your troops to be sent over to us as a sample, we will send you the number desired, if so many of that size we have, or can procure.
