Navy Yard Wash[ington] 10 Dec[embe]r 1817
Sir
I have received the twelve balls, as models
for 42 pounder grape shot: and consider them
as extremely well executed: and have now to
request you will be pleased to turn and fur-
nish me with ten others, of 2 55/100 inches, in-
tended for the same sized gun, but, to have five
in each tier round the stem of the stool.
I am very respectfully
Sir
Your obed[ien]t Serv]an]t
Tho[ma]s Tingey

Mr. John Rose.
