Ironsides letter

Check this out-- really cool. The part about being frugal with ammunition amuses me. Seems to be a theme in AOS.

Ooh that's fascinating! Thanks for sharing this. It's very similar to British Admiralty orders I've seen. The universality of the navy again! You can see why wealthier captains purchased their own ammunition. I also like the order that prizes must be sent under a careful prize master!
