George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Timothy Pickering, 20 February 1797

Feby 20th 1797.

The President will read with pleasure the postscript of the inclosed letter from Robert Montgomery our Consul at Alicante, which I have received this day—excepting what relates to the capture of another American vessel by Tripo[li;] concerning which however Mr Barlow’s words are consoling. The last sentence broken by the seal I read thus—"I have taken now what I think will be effectual measures with these States above."

T. Pickering
