Summary:This is a letter from U.S. Representative William Charles Cole Claiborne to David Henley, dated March 14, 1800. Claiborne is giving his opinion on a proposed reduction in the Army. Though he does not worry about an invasion, he still believes that a strong defence is necessary. Claiborne also writes that the Army would not be able to withstand an attack if one did occur. He believes they should concentrate on training and equipping the militia as a permanent protection force.
