Uriah P Levy Defence Crane To Stewart

Unites States Ship United States, February 4, 1818
Sir,
It is with deep regret that I learn Lieut. Levy and other officers have been ordered to my ship….My ship already has her complement of officers; any additions will not only be inconvenient, but may tend to destroy the harmony and good-will which have uniformly prevailed. [p. 14] Considerations of a personal nature render Lieut. Levy peculiarly objectionable, and I trust, he at least will not be forced upon me.
I have the honr to be , &c., &c., &c., &c.,
Wm. M. Crane
[To] Commodore Charles Stewart, &c., &c., &c. U.S. Ship Franklin
