    Thanks Bill.
    Another interesting snippet of information which sheds light on the activities going on in the real lives of the people at the time. It may well help to flesh out some of our AArs if we include bits like this in our thinking if not in our actual fleshing out of our characters.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Thank you for sharing that, Bill. It was good that the American Navy was willing to help its seamen to care for their families in this way.
