Did the United States have a third atomic bomb to drop on Japan?

On 15 August, six days after the bombing of Nagasaki, Japan announced its surrender to the United States, signing the instrument of surrender on 2 September, officially ending the war. The question is: Why didn't the United States drop another atomic bomb between 9 August and 15 August, at the risk of not having the war ended in a short time? How certain are we that the United States didn't have a third atomic bomb to drop over Japan?

Only 10% of the world's knowledge is online. I was an intelligence officer in two branches of the military for 23 years and had lot of contacts and WWII veterans I got to know. There are many sources, including films and documentaries on this with Amazon. For a good general roll-up, see... https://www.nytimes.com/1995/12/31/us/captured-cargo-captivating-mystery.html
