Madrid Septr 1st. 1807
I do not write to you at large unofficially by this conveyance, or officially further than seems to be absolutely necessary to the course of business; lest my letters should fall into the hands of the Enemy; not being myself of the persuasion which seems ⟨to⟩ be general here, and (as I learn) in England, that a ⟨co⟩mplete& honorable satisfaction will be made for all ⟨is⟩ outrages & insults. Nor indeed have I any thing material to add at present upon the subjects mentioned ⟨in⟩ my three last private letters, viz those of June 22 July 17, & August 11th. Dear Sir Always with most sincere Respect & Esteem Your very obliged &obt St
George W Erving
