Lisbon 12th. June 1801
It is now most creditably assured that Peace has taken Place between this Country Spain ⟨&⟩ France. It is said, it is to be Publickly announced ⟨to⟩morrow & 3 nights eluminations are to be in consequence ⟨of⟩ the event. The terms are not known but its ⟨m⟩ore than probable are very disadvantageous to this Country. My next will I hope be able to give ⟨y⟩ou further particulars. I have the honor to remain ⟨w⟩ith the greatest respect Sir your most humble Serv⟨t.⟩
P. S. A Gentn. appeard today on the Exa: who is the Pack⟨et⟩ Agent, & informd (supposed Authorized by the Bt. Minr.) the British Merchants too much caution coud not now be taken with their property in this Country.
