The supreme central Junta of government having gotten into full activity; tho it had not appointed a secretary of State for foreign affairs, I thought it proper no longer to delay a representation respecting those of our vessels which are yet detained at Algesiras, under the blockade decree of the Emperor of France dated Milan Novr. 17, which was adopted by this government in January last; and...
I have the honor herewith to transmit to you an ordinance or "provision" of the Council of Castile, dated the 1st. Inst., issued in compliance with the order of the Supreme central "Junta", & commanding the other tribunals & authorities civil & religious of the kingdom, to pay obedience to the "Junta" as the depositary of the Royal Authority. You will observe that the order of the "Junta" was...
I have the honor herewith to transmit copy of a note of yesterday’s date which I have just received from the President ad interim of the Supreme Central Junta, communicating the installation of the same; also my answer of this date. With the most perfect respect & consideration, Sir, Your very obt. Servant. To the above inclosures is added a Gazette Extraordinary, giving a detail of the...
I omitted in my last to say any thing respecting the Russian fleet in the Tagus, because several accounts pretended to be received here, were very contradictory of each other on that interesting point. But Baron Stroganoff, the Russian Minister at Madrid, who some four weeks ago left this for Lisbon, having now returned from Badajos, beyond which he did not think proper to go, as the subjects...
I have the honor to inclose a very interesting memoir which Mr. Cevallos has ju st published, relating to the transactions at B ayonne; & which he has communicated to me wi th a view to its being transmitted to our Go vernment. This memoir avoids detail eve n on the most important transactions to which it refers, & leaves the curiosity wholly unsatisfied on other occurrences well deserving...
According to present appearances, the surprizing efforts which this country has made are likely to be crowned with complete success: it has been assisted too by a sort of fatality which seems to have accompanied the french arms from the commencement. The grossest Errors have been committed by generals of the greatest reputation; to say nothing of political Errors which have been abundant; &...
My last dispatch informed you of those extraordinary military operations in this Country, which compelled king Joseph to abandon Madrid, & with the remains of the french armies, to retreat towards the frontiers: Considerable reinforcements having about the same time entered Spain by way of Navarre, his Majesty judged fit to make a stand at Burgos, & there for a time he established his court:...
My last unofficial letter to you was of May 17th.; I have nothing at present of a private nature connected with the matter of the accompanying dispatch, which is of sufficient importance to be communicated to you: indeed whatever information of any consequence that contains, I presume will reach you before this. The past transactions, & the actual state of affairs here, certainly merit the...
When I had last the honor of writing to you, (June 22nd. to 27th.) a determined opposition to the new order of things here, had very generally manifested itself throughout the provinces; since then it has been continually acquiring extension, force, & organization; and has ultimately been attended with a success in all quarters very much beyond what even the most sanguine imagination could...
My last dispatch dated May 27 was forwarded by post to Mr. Young at Algeciras; owing only (as I hope,) to the present disturbed state of the country & the consequent stoppage of all the couriers from Andalusia, I have not heard from him since he left Madrid on the 25th. Ulto., but lest unfortunately he may have met with any accident or detention, I lately transmitted a duplicate of said...
