Dear Mr. Breshears,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Letters Received from Commanding Officers of Squadrons, 2/16/1841 - 11/11/1886 in the Naval Records Collection of the Office of Naval Records and Library, 1691 - 1945 (Record Group 45) that include records of the East India Squadron. We also located the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships, ca. 1801 - 1940 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, 1798 - 2007 (Record Group 24). For access to both of these series, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
