James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Jarvis, 13 October 1803

From William Jarvis, 13 October 1803

Lisbon 13th. October 1803.


My original Letters of which the accompanying are duplicates with the extracts mentioned therein, went by the Brig Essex, Captn. Webster, via Newbury Port; who sailed in Company with the Ship Eliza, Captn. Patch for the same place. They sailed the afternoon of the 10th. with a strong North Easterly Wind and I have no doubt they will not be in danger from the Moor for reasons before assigned; The Extract from the Dutch Consul at Tangier (see No. 6) is the only information I have since received, worth troubling you with. Affairs continue quiet here. I have the Honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble Servant,

William Jarvis
