4The news from Hamburg was doubtless another report from his correspondent in Berlin; the one in his letter of Feb. 10 came via Hamburg. The issue of the Mercure is impossible to trace. The news from Nantes (Gaz. de Leyde, Feb. 17) was about the universal mourning there for the death of Thomas Morris.
