Description
Is much affected to see the places of Director and Major of the marine filled by younger officers than himself; refers to his record as compared with theirs, his zeal, his superior age, his service of 43 years, and his want of fortune, which he has not sought to increase in the positions he has held; asks that justice may be accorded him.
