From Thomas Bulkeley, 10 February 1802
Lisbon the 10th. Febry. 1802
The enclosed copy of a letter from Mr. Charles Fredk. Knise, our deputy Consul at Faro, will relate the unfortunate circumstance that has happened to one of our vessels, stranded on that coast.
I have written by this conveyance to the Collector of the Customs at Boston enclosing him the abstract of said Letter requesting he will cause the same to be made public, in order to discover the Owners, that the property saved may be delivered to them on proper proof coming forward. I have the honor to be Sir Your most humble servant
