You have doubtless noticed lately in our gazettes, an informal paragraph relative to the line of conduct which G.

Amongst the various changes produced, & to be produced in Europe, by the abdication of the emperor Napoleon, I presume that the actual transactions in Spain, & the future fate of that country, may be considered as peculiarly, & most immediately interesting, to the United States: The english papers relate most of the important occurrences, but in what is speculative, I observe that they do not...
In my last unofficial letter (which was dated Inst) I mentioned a certain supposed project of the Emperor wi th respect to the Empress.
