§ From William Savage
7 December 1804, Kingston, Jamaica. “I wrote you the 19t October via Alexandria by two Conveyance, in one of which letters1 I transmitted a Copy of the Order of the Governer [&] Councel here to the Collectors of the ports of this Island, I now inclose a printed Copy taken from the Royall Gazette.2
“This accom[p]anys another list [not found] of persons who represented themselves to be Americans on board different Vessels on this Station.”
RC, two copies, and enclosure (DNA: RG 59, CD, Kingston, Jamaica, vol. 1). First RC 1 p.; cover postmarked 10 Jan. at New York and marked: “ Brig Gene[rous] Fri[e]nd Cap Russel for New York.” Second RC marked “Duplicate”; dated 7 Dec. 1805. For surviving enclosure, see n. 2.

The handwritten enclosure (2 pp.; with Savage’s attestation: “The foregoing is a true Copy from the original published in the Kingston Royall Gazette of the 24 November 1804”) is a copy of the 21 Nov. 1804 resolution of the council, giving notice that after six months from that date a 17 July 1800 resolution allowing the import of various meat and vegetable products and lumber and the export of rum and molasses in neutral, non-British vessels would cease to have effect.
