Balto. Feby 16th 1807
Your letter of the 13th inst came to hand this day since which I have seen Mr. Lewis Pauscalt the owner of the Schooner Three Friends who informed me that she was hourly expected to arrive here, He said that she was not out of time, as he was informed by a letter dated 5th octr last She would proceed to Barcellona and Malaga previous to her departure for this Port.—
As Mr Pauscalt has no apprehensions respecting the safety of his Vessell, I hope you will not experience any more disappointments, I presume the small Box of wine that was left under the care of the late Mr Purviance, and which I forwarded to you got safe to hand.
I have the Honor to be with great respect your obt. Srvt
