The March 20 1801 Edition of the Albany Register Extra has a story about the NYC inauguration of Thomas Jefferson and the celebration that followed. It includes this sentence "...after which the Essex frigate, Captain Phips, fired 16 guns, which were succeeded by the same number from the United States brig, Richmond."
