Shoreham, September 30, 1839.) Sir:

Since my report to you of Sept. 29, 1898, I have received of the U. States and deposited in the Arsenal in Vergennes, six hundred and eighty two, (682) common rifles complete, and in good order, being the amount due from the U. States at the close of the year 1837, under an act of Congress for arning the militia of the several Slates, passed Apuil 1508. Besides these, ihe State has sixty-five rifles, making the whole number, seven hundred and forty seven. (747)

Since the date of that repori, I have completed the cleaning and repairing of the arms at Vergennes belonging to the State. The number of muskets, cleaned is fifiy seven hundred and three, (5703) and of rifles sixty-five (65)-atan expense of twenty-one hundred sixty-five dollars and ninety cenis. Four hundred and five of the muskets repaired, were those collected last year by Mr. Slade. The balance, being fifty-six, I believed not worth repairing, and have sold them for ninety-five (95) doilars.

of the arms collected on the east side of the mountain by General Phelps, seven hundred and seventy-two, (772) he caused to be repaired and put them into the possession of Mr. W. E. Trask, of Windsor. These, and the 5703 repaired at Vergennes, are all the muskets belonging lo the state of which I have any knowledge, making sixty-four hundred and seventy-five (6475.)

I have loaned to Capt. Partridge, as reported to you last year, and distributed to the militia of the State, in obedience to your several orders, six hundred and sixty (660) rifles, and thirteen hundred and seventy (1370) muskets. To wit:

MUSKETS. To Capt. Partridge
