Some folks just do not know how to play the hand that is dealt them.

To Daniel D. Brodhead, Navy Agent, Boston, MA, 10 Apr 1835:

“Your letter dated the 16th ultimo enclosing bills of Messrs Kittridge & Blake Flag and Crockett for Furniture for the Frigate Constitution amounting to Twelve hundred & eighty six 75/100 dollars was duly recd.  The Constitution having been fitted for the accommodation of a Minister, the extra charges in those bills are allowed‑‑  The bills are herewith returned.”
