Correspondence from Amos Townsend delivered via James Covey. In the letter, Townsend states that Covey has a desire to see the city of New York "as he only passed through it in the night when he came from the [HMS] Buzzard." It is mentioned that Covey has been impatient during the winter and wishes to now return to Sierra Leone. He is now more contented and Townsend would not oppose his wish to visit New York "as he has behaved himself very well." Townsend sends six dollars towards his expenses and suggests that Lewis Tappan "make some arrangement with him about his wages taking into account the amount which has been expended on him."
