St Petersburg 27 Oct. 8 Nov. 1807.
I have this moment received the inclosed most important declaration of this Government, which I hasten to transmit to Cronstadt to be forwarded by the only American Vessel remaining, & which is on the moment of departure. I shall write particularly by next post via Holland when a duplicate will be forwarded.
His Excellency Count Romanzoff has communicated the same in a note to me by order of the Emperor, with a request to forward the inclosed by the earliest oppy. I have the honor to be with great respect Sir, your Most Obed Sert.
