Providence was the first ship authorized by the Continental Congress for the Continental Navy. It is indeed an honor for me, and I’m sure her future captains, to serve aboard this fine vessel. She’s taut, fast, and weatherly; the crew is the best with which I’ve sailed. My tour with Providence could well become the happiest of my life.”  Captain John Paul Jones
