555. ARMY, A volunteer.—

[With respect
to] the proposition for substituting
32,000 twelve-month volunteers instead of
15,000 regulars as a disposable force, I like
the idea much. It will, of course, be a subject
of consideration when we all meet again, but
I repeat that I like it greatly.—
To General Dearborn. Washington ed. v, 155. Ford ed., ix, 123.
(M. Aug. 1807)
