The Day before yesterday Mr Carmichael received Letters from Algiers from M r Lamb, dated the 29 th. of last Month, and from M r Randal the 26 th.

He cannot come on shore without a Permission from Court to shorten his Quarantine, which Mr Carmichael has...
I forward the inclosed Letter from M r. Lamb for your Excellencies Information: That Gentleman has also written to me, But as I suppose he has given M r. Jefferson a more ample & satisfactory Detail of the State of his Negotiation than I can comprehend from his Letter to me, I do not think it necessary to forward a Copy of it. M r. Barclay to whom I have communicated all the Intelligence I...

It contains all the Observations I have been enabled to make by Reason of the Obstacles which (in my Situation at Algiers) prevented particular Enquiry. Indeed I had not the most...
The enclosed copy of a letter, which I lately received from the Count D’Espilly, contains the best information that I have in my power to afford your Excellency, with respect to the situation of our affairs at Algiers. Mr. Lamb arrived at Alicant the 24th ultimo, and undoubtedly will have advised you of his proceedings after Mr. Randall’s departure. That gentleman is now with me, and avails...

M r. Randall so that your Excellencyes might have the earlyest notice of our matters in that Quarter: in a short...
I hope to have the Pleasure of soon hearing from you, and of being informed whether you have a my Commands for me farther than Morocco. I have long been anxious to see the Trade of our Country to these Parts, put on a safe and respectable footing, as I am well acquainted with the Importance of the Object, and if I can, while I am in the Neighbourhood of Africa, in the smallest Degree...
Since my arrival here, the Ninth, nothing has occurr’d worth your Attention; I am waiting for a Vessel that is Bound to Magadore and expect to Sail in a few Days. You have probably as late Accounts from M r. Lamb as I Can give you, yet it may not be Improper to Inform you of his Arrival at Alicant the 24 th. of last Month, where doubtless his Quaranteen has delay’d his proceeding to...
I arrived here after an agreeable Passage of Five days and was very well received by the Governor & by the People who seem pleased to see Persons from a Country at so great a distance come to compliment their Sovereign; As the Governor had no orders concerning our going forward, I was obliged to send a Courier to Morocco to demand that Permission, and at the same time wrote to M r. Chiappi of...
This day week we arrived here, since which I have had two audiences from His Majesty, the first a public one & the second a private one of yesterday. It is but a few minutes since I heard that a Courrier will depart this Evening for Daralbeyda, & I have not time to enter into particulars.
