I arrived here to Day and shall Continue My Journey to Tangiers Early in the Morning,—The Plague being at Constantina occasions a Rigorous Quaranteen of 40 Days (from Barbary) in Spain—I shall therefore Endeavor to get into Ceuta, which being in the hands of the Spaniards is an Exception to the above remark, and I think the Quaranteen from thence is only [twelve] [...] Days—

The Treaty shall be forwarded with all Expedition as soon as I arrive in Europe, and in the Mean time I am Gentlemen Your Very Obed. / Serv.

Thos. Barclay
