Dec. 12. 1806
From an Officer of the Navy residing at Charleston S.C. who had my permission to make a voyage in a Merchant Vessel, I have just received a letter dated Charleston Nov. 29. 1806 which states that “the only situations to be had here at present are in the African Trade”—
I give you this intimation as an indication of the present dispositions of S. Carolina—
