An honorable Peace is and always was my first wish! I can take no delight in the effusion of human Blood; but, if this War should continue, I wish to have the most active part in it.
-John Paul Jones, 1782, letter to Gouverneur Morris
Less than a month now before I go home. Today I am going over to another lady's house to stay for a few days because of the rule that I can't stay on base for more than thirty days. Not much else going on here!
