3741. HISTORY (American), Naval.—

Why omit all mention of the scandalous campaigns
of Commodore Morris? A two years'
command of an effective squadron, with discretionary
instructions, wasted in sailing from port
to port of the Mediterranean, and a single half
day before the port of the enemy against which
he was sent. All this can be seen in the proceedings
of the court on which he was dismissed;
and it is due to the honorable truths
with which the book abounds, to publish those
which are not so.—
To Matthew Carr. Washington ed. vi, 132.
(M. 1813)
