I have this moment received a letter from Stephen Ca thalan Esqr. our Consul at Marseilles, enclosing the annexed copy of one he recd from the American Consulate at Naples, containing the disagreeable intelli ge nce of the Algerines having declared war against the United States. I at firs t doubted the news, as some of our Consuls in the Mediterranean deal a l ittle in the marvellous; but on...
A rumour having been current here for some days past tha t the Emperor had said to Genl. Armstrong that if we let slip this favo rable opportunity of declaring against England, that he intended to s hut our Commerce out from all the ports of Europe untill the con test between France and England should terminate, I thought it my duty to state the same to the General, beleiving the report to...
The following is an extract by tra nslation of a letter recd. this day from a respectable m an in Hamburg, and communicated to me by a friend "It is asserted here but I do not know with ho w much truth, that one great cause of the French Emperors having issued this famous decree was his ha ving recd. information that on the 5th inst. there w as concluded at London a Treaty between the U S of...

Since my last respects of the 20th Ulto so many circumstances have come to my knowledge to make me believe that several persons are endeavouring to injure me with the Government that I have judged it necessary again to repeat to you that I should feel much flattered if any thing of this nature should appear in your office by your recommending the President to order our Minister at Paris to...
I take the liberty to enclose you a list of the Vessels which have entered and cleared at this Port from the 26 Octr. (the day on which I took charge of the Agency) to the 31 December. I wish it was more perfect but such is the unaccomodating disposition of our American Captains that there is no persuading them into any measure of public utility not enforced by the Government. Were they...
I beg leave to transmit you an extract of a letter I have this day received from General Armstrong, as it is calculated in a measure to dissipate those fears occasioned by the Decree of the 21st. November. By what I can learn, the four privateers, which are fitting out here, with the expectation of being permitted to attack our commerce experience some difficulty at the Marine office. I begin...
Mr. Baker having put all the letters addressed to me into the possession of the Commissary General of Police at Lorient prevented my receiving the one you did me the honor to write me by that Gentleman under date of the 2d. of May until this morning.
