To James Madison from Robert Montgomery, 21 May 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Robert Montgomery

21 May 1803, Alicante. Wrote on 27 Apr.1 enclosing a copy of a letter from O’Brien. Has since received the enclosed for JM and hopes O’Brien “may be able to weather out the squall he so much dreads.” “No Tripolin Corsairs have appeared on this Coast since the Capture of the Francklin … and tho our merchantmen continue to navigate here with some dread they have since that time been entirely unmollested. Our Convoys for want of small Vessels are unsufficient to cover all the trade.”
