From Vincent Gray, 29 October 1803

Havana 29th. October 1803.


Enclosed you have my accounts up to the last Day ⟨o⟩f September, together with a return of the American vessels ⟨th⟩at have entered and departed the Port of Havana, since the last Law placing some power in the hands of American Agents in Foreign Ports, Came to hand. Also a Monthly return of vessels purchased in this Port, by, and for account of Citizens of the United States; which in time of War are always most liable to suspician and detention.

I will thank you to cause my accounts to be settled ⟨with⟩ your Department as soon as convenient, as I wish to draw for the balance that may be due to me, in the course ⟨of⟩ November next.

The remarks I have made on the vouchers herewith will I presume fully explain the nature of each charge. I am Sir, Very respectfully yr Mo. Obt. Serv.

Vincent Gray
