An act of the General Assembly was passed in October 1776 for making a farther provision for the internal security and defence of this country. This act, among other things, authorized the commissioners of the navy to provide for the building of two frigates and four gallies. The act also appointed Sampson Mathews and Alexander Sinclair as trustees for establishing, at public expense, a manufactory for the making of sail duck for these gallies. The sail duck manufactory was established in Staunton, Virginia.
